Bigger things are coming!!!!

By Fatima K - February 05, 2014

I've always been quite private about my views, well I think I have anyway! I've adopted a very 'European' attitude one could say, a 'you believe what you want and I'll believe what I want' sort, the one where we can talk about pretty much anything but personal beliefs and religion.

Recently however, through my studies, I've come to converse more on topics which I think are interesting and important -  which is very good, because its opened up so many doors for me. I've started to actually voice my opinion where as normally I just sit and watch and think 'fair enough if that's what you think!'

For me to speak out it's like a post-structuralist inventing a theory and publishing it, because, like a post-structuralist, I'd have to stress these are just my own thoughts and not a really a theory. In fact, I'm a firm believer in having your own opinions and the right to choice, which is probably why I prefer to just listen and form my own opinions, because like they say in Bride and Prejudice (2004)

In the same way, I've come to learn that it's OK to have opinions, but we can't impose them on others. Having opinions is healthy and listening to other views and ideas can help to broaden our minds, and sometimes even reinforce the views we already have. It's good to talk.

But remember, talking and listening go hand in hand, so if you aren't prepared to listen, its probably not worth talking. If you stop listening to others, eventually others will stop listening to you!

So, I've decided, as you may have noticed from a few posts,  to broaden my horizons and write about different issues. I will still write stories and recall events, but now and then I may do something a little different.
