ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

it's all a matter of opinion

Opinions are like toys. Everyone has different toys they like to play with and everyone has different opinions they like to share. When we talk about opinions, we mean what someone thinks or believes about something. Some people might think pizza is the best food ever, while others might think hamburgers are the best. And that's okay!

Opinions can be based on lots of different things, like personal experiences, what we've learned from our friends and family, or what we've seen on TV. Sometimes people change their opinions if they learn something new or have a new experience. It's kind of like trying a new toy and deciding whether you like it or not.

The most important thing to remember is that everyone's opinion is valid, even if we don't agree with it. It's okay to have different opinions and we should be respectful of other people's thoughts and beliefs. So the next time you hear someone talking about their favorite toy or their opinion on something, remember that it's just their way of expressing themselves and that we should all be kind and understanding towards each other.
