Have you ever sought for other’s opinions when in self-doubt? Or have you ever been served with an unwanted course of opinions?
What is one to do when one cannot find it’s own voice or cannot hear it because of other people’s voices?
One could listen.
One could listen and take them into consideration before taking any action.
One could listen, and do anyways what one had in mind to do.
One could pretend to listen.
One could write them on a piece of paper, burn it and flush the ash away. Or tear that piece of paper into tiny bits and use it as confetti.
One could just say “No, not interested. Thank you, next!”
Sometimes, the above suggestions are a healthy way of dealing with other people’s opinions, but more often life is full of beautiful contradictory situations. Learning how to filter, structure, debate and defend yours and other opinions is an outside of your comfort zone service to yourself!
This event will focus on learning about filter bubbles and echo chambers, argumentation structure and debating techniques, and more importantly on HAVING LOTS OF FUN!
