Having an opinion on a subject matter is a personal thing. Just because you have an opinion on a matter does not mean that you are in the right and the other person is wrong.

You do have a right to speak and state your opinion; however, you do not have a right to impose it on other people because they too have their own opinions. Therefore, it is important for each one of us to learn and cultivate the art of good communication.

Here are some practical ways to get started:

  • Consider the source of your opinion and make sure that you know all the facts behind it.
  • Before you voice out your opinion on any subject matter, first listen and then take a deep breath. Do not be too quick in saying anything.
  • Be open to other people‚Äôs opinions and think them over before you disagree or agree.

In conclusion, keeping good relationships is more important than standing on opinions that can cause a rift between you and your family or loved ones.
