Opinion vs Advice

Opinion: As per Wikipedia, “an opinion is a judgment, viewpoint, or statement.”

Opinions are mere views. Different people have different opinions, which can help widen one’s perspective, letting us see things from different angles which we might be blind to earlier.

It’s important to have different opinions, you know. Opinions can be of relevance but not helpful for all given micro scenarios/situations of our lives. Opinions might be influenced by each other, but people would generally give advice (suggest/recommend) from their own experiences, what they have observed, seen or felt – not heard.

That’s my opinion.

Advice: Here’s my advice. Don’t go for opinions. Seek advice. At the same time, be your own judge.
