We all have our own opinions and nowadays, a lot of us like to share them with everyone… a little too much at times.
Some people tend to share their viewpoints even when it’s not warranted or asked. Some people are not given a fair chance at experiencing anything on their own. If you try and tell someone what to do, or how to do it, then how will they be able to experience the moment on their own? How will they learn anything on their own if they never got an honest shot at it? They can’t if you’re up in their bubble forcing your opinions on how they should handle it.
I understand when it comes to those you care about, you may want to prevent them from learning things the hard way. Perhaps you want to avoid watching something bad happen to them. Certain situations are valid for expressing those feelings and providing some insight. Yet, it doesn’t mean it’ll go the same way it went for you.

I’ve had people express how I should do something before I participated in the event. Just like that, whatever I felt was best or what my own natural instinct was for any of it, went out the door. Considering, all those other opinions were floating through my head on how I should do it. Talk about discouraging! I’ll never know what I would have done or how I would have handled it on my own, as I never got a decent chance.
Have you ever had someone tell you how great a movie was before you saw it? Then you watch it, and you were rather disappointed. They gave you such high expectations that you walked in with no opinion of your own. The point is, I feel there’s a time and place on how much you should express to others (when not asked).
Everyone deserves a fair chance at this one life we live and have their own experiences. They should be able to learn more about themselves and life in general.
As well to form their own opinions or thoughts on each opportunity they come across. People are not able to determine their wants, needs, or desires if they are not given a proper chance.
Give those the green light to figure it out on their own and feel what they want to feel in the occasion. Unless it’s life or death related and is a serious situation, then let them be in the moment. It’s the least you can do for those you love and care about. Let people live their own life and let them be!
