Gem Magazine January issue: Golden opinions

“I have bought
Golden opinions from all sorts of people.”

– William Shakespeare Macbeth, Act 1, Scene 7

The first Gem Magazine of the year 2022 is about opinions. About assumptions we people tend to make.

As master Shakespeare said it; nowadays it’s about buying golden opinions of from the media, of from the news and of from the social media. The list goes on…

Then we believe them and make them our truths, dissmissing every other opinion along the way.

The trouble is, however, that one person believes in an opinion, then the other person believes in an opinion with the same issue. Opinions of the same thing clashing is what’s going to happen.

We should regard the opinions of the opinions of one person. Not the full truth of the Universe. Just one opinion. Are you being loud with your own opinions? Now I’m going through them..surely those are there, only people are just being nice around.

Now, assumptions are quite funny actually!

Personally, people just bomb you with assuming stuff. See, they have made Your Story up, like a dream, in their minds and then assume that it’s correct. This has happened to me thirteen times out of twelve. As I said, it is much easier just to say ‘yes, you’re (absolutely) right.’. And then shake your head later.
