We need to keep in mind that we are responsible for our thoughts, decisions and actions. Other people can tell you what their opinions are, but no one can really force theirs on someone else without his or her consent. It is important to have your own stand and opinions. You do not need to be afraid if yours do not agree with the majority or someone who is highly respected. As long as you have made an informed one, with careful research and knowledge, you just need to own it and let not others affect you.
