Making space for our own thoughts
Words by Dr. Egypt Iredia
I'm an avid journaler. I like to reflect on my life, see areas of growth or challenge, and craft some kind of game plan. In one of these journalling sessions, I pondered on the notion of opinions. It seems that, in this digital age, there is an epidemic of opinions. Everyone has something to say. And online, all these voices are ramped up a few notches.
We're blasted with views from others everywhere we look. It seems everyone has an opinion on how best we should conduct our lives, spend our money, and other things.
We're flooded with tips, tricks, and secrets online and off. Life hacks abound. Why does it seem like everyone is ever hacking something? It's all about hacking this or that.
With a little time searching Google or scrolling social media, we'll come across so many opinions daily. There are endless insider guides, reviews, curated content, interviews, and articles. We're exposed to a sea of thousands of opinions every day.
It's no wonder anxiety and depression are on the rise.
