Opinion vs Criticismfleeting
Sometimes, people ask for my opinion about some stuff. When I tell it, they try to “reassure” me, or explain themselves.
Generally, this makes me feel uneasy, because I feel like if I wanted to be reassured or start a debate, I would explicitly make a criticism.
Somehow, it is as if people did not believe that I can have an opinion about something and still let it go. I think this is the principle of dichotomy of control that is not well understood here.
