Opinions...

Opinions are ... like you know... you have heard it before... like ... a**h****.
Everyone has one. But seriously, whose do you use? Yours or someone else's? (sorry! couldn't resist it, hehe :)

So look unto yourself for "what to do"!

There will be nay-sayers and there will be yes-men. So who do you believe?

One person looks at you and all you do and says, "you are multi-talented! You are so good at so many things!"
And the very next instant someone looks at you and all you do and says, "You are good for nothing. You cannot do anything right".

Hmm...so who do you believe? Yourself, of course! Who else will know how you feel?
Who else will know whether you have given your 100% to something that you get criticized for, or 10% to something you get praised for!

You and you alone can be the judge! And what is more, you are accountable to yourself first and then anyone else. You have to set your own bar and work towards it. You decide what satisfies you and what does not. After all you are responsible for your own happiness, not someone else! Right?

So...you know....opinions also...use your own!

Reminds me of a David Brinkley book title - Everyone Is Entitled to My Opinion. It's a compilation of closing comments ABC TV's Brinkley used to come up with to sign-off his news programmes.

Yes....agree and sometimes this also boosts a false ego...if you are constantly told you are GOOD or really depressed if told Good for Nothing even if you are trying your best....

@gvk, that's sounds like a fun read!

@ceedy, exactly! We need to keep our heads in the right place while processing both compliments as well as criticism.
