Opinion is not fact

I cannot express enough how much someones opinion is not fact.
We are all individuals and unique yet we are all one and have more in common than what separates us.

When it comes to writing I just want to say that write what you like, not what others in your group of friends like or the recent trend.5(unless that’s what your into)
For me, I enjoy fantasy, magic and other worldly stories, ideas that push the realm of realities and question your beliefs. 
But my beliefs are probably very different from yours.  Some people may not like what you write,  it won’t please everybody but don’t take offense.
I may a see the colour red and you may say it’s pink, neither of us are right it’s only a matter of opinion.

But remember to keep an open mind and don’t be so quick to judge others.
They may think your wrong in what you say or do, and to them that is a belief and their perspective,  but again it’s an opinion. On the other hand you think you are right, now If you can keep an open mind on this and accept we are different – each with our perspective, then negativity or criticism and the fear that comes with it will no longer affect you in ways that you can’t control.

So take control and understand that even what you believe and know may not be the same for others. We have free will in our choices and decisions
and words and most importantly how we react to a situation.
Ask questions and gain knowledge. Understanding where other people come from can be difficult but to be willing and ask questions will feed your wisdom and enable you to be open to understanding others.

Not everyone is going to like what you write so write what  YOU  like!

    1. It’s so easy to slip into believing you’re right, especially if you read a lot and are generally knowledgeable, sometimes people find it arrogant perhaps because they are intimidated by it and reflect back with negativity. So acknowledging not only others opinions are individual to them but ours are also only opinion not fact 🙂 peace

  1. I’m glad someone else thinks like this. Personally, I enjoy giving people something to ponder in their free time. If it just happens to work its way a little under their skin, or if it just so happens to consume a few minutes of their otherwise peaceful sleep, at least my perspective is out there somewhere.

  2. I remember discussing one of my own stories with someone, who told me that I was wasting my time and should be writing about vampires and zombies– because that’s what’s popular. My response to her was–There’s an ole Mamas and Papas song with the lyrics “You’ve got to make your own kind of music, even if nobody else sings along.” And I still believe in that. Nice post.
