The Versus Series: Skepticism vs. Appreciation
by Nic Olson
Skepticism. It’s not a lack of trust as much as it is a presence of knowledge. Being skeptical is a learned trait of mine that is a close cousin of stubbornness. Being a skeptic allows possible freedoms, but becoming skeptical can then restrict these same liberties, by stubborness, which then can force you to live by them. Skepticism is great, if you have the strength to not be bound to/by what you are doubtful of. Skepticism is a bad word, but it shouldn’t be.
