"Your opinion is your opinion, your perception is your perception. 

Do not confuse them with 'facts' or 'truths.'

-John Moore

We all have opinions on a lot of subjects and situations, and most of us probably feel that our opinion is justified. Of course, you think it's right, it is your opinion, what you have always believed to be true.


OPINION: a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge. PERCEPTION: a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something; a mental impression

Many of our opinions are formed during our childhood, others through our adult experiences. Until challenged, most people don't dissect their beliefs or perceptions, they are usually merely an instinctive response. 

Do not confuse them with 'facts' or 'truths.'

If you closely examine your belief system, you may find that that your point of view is no longer valid for life today. Feel free to change your mind. 

Just because you have had these convictions for a long time, does not mean you have to stick with them. You can eliminate any of them at any time to make room for new ideas to filter in. Take a look and see what you can see.
