Everyone has opinions: it’s probably best to determine whether they’re accurate. Doesn’t matter only what our hearts say: in this we should use our heads too. Beliefs, friendships, loyalties, product advertising news and more are all bound up in that space between what’s real and what we want to be real. Today, it’s easier than ever to check on most things: the internet gives us such quick access to information. But, like the text behind the ‘agree’ button when accepting an app, we often don’t take the time to read the fine print, to know what’s really there, to understand how or why it might affect us. The old ‘buyer beware’warning still applies today: like then, it’s still up to all of us to know before we buy (or believe). It’s not enough to assume: being informed is always better. Even though it takes extra time to be really informed, use it to know what’s true today.
