I learnt this lesson the hard way. Yup, I’m about to tell you a story you didn’t ask for. It was 2015 and I had just finished my junior secondary school and had proceeded to senior secondary school as a science student of course mostly because most people thought I was brilliant enough to study the course(this story is becoming so dramatic or maybe not. Maybe not.)
Since we never did biology, physics or chemistry in junior secondary school, I visited my seniors to learn more about the subjects. Most of my seniors seemed to think physics and furthermaths were super hard. Well, that is the lesson. Because my seniors thought furthermaths and physics were hard, I took it as a fact and resumed to senior secondary school believing the subjects were too hard.
That single opinion turned fact made me fail those subjects a lot until I decided that it was not as hard as they made it seem. Since then, Kita learnt the difference between opinions and facts.
In many ways we confuse people’s opinions with facts and this can lead to confusion and problems. It’s best to learn to work,talk and think with facts rather than opinions.
