I’ve always believed that I’m not taken too seriously because I’m young. Now I’m starting to question whether people are taken seriously at all.
Over the course of my relatively short life, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some extremely smart and talented people who are considered professionals in their field of work. Yet even they aren’t listened to when it comes to subjects that they are knowledgeable of. I mean, seriously, how many knowledgeable professionals do we choose to ignore on a daily basis? My guess is hundreds.
In light of this fact, I am no longer concerned about people’s perception of my thoughts or opinions. Instead, I will strive to perfect my beliefs based on my own judgment.
