We do not need opinions that are conclusive or assertive but rather the ones that are raw, because the latter transform us by planting the much-needed restlessness.
Truth that isn’t elaborated excessively gives us parts fill. It presents discomfort that baffles us when try to respond to it.
At the same time, it leaves us wanting for more. More what? We don’t know that unless we figure it out ourselves.
I might read a quote that affects me, making me close the book and ponder. Or I might listen to somebody’s startling perspective that’ll have me staring at the wall for a while.
I hope you get what I’m talking about. In most cases, I can sense an uneasiness that begs for questions and makes me reassess my life or my entire outlook of looking at the world.
Those are really the thoughts that make us grow – not the ones that spoon-feed and direct us – but the ones that disturb and nudge us.
