On Opinions

Sometimes, I'm quiet because I don't really have an opinion on the issue.

But not usually. No, usually:

I am quiet because I am so opinionated.

I can get out of hand. Easily.

Don't mistake my silence on the topic as having no opinion.

Oh, don't you worry. I've got an opinion, and it's backed up with all sorts of facts, oversights, misunderstandings and personal prejudice. Just like yours.

I've just learned to value relationships more than hoping everyone will agree with me.

I'd rather not strain the relationship, so I'll keep my opinions to myself.
