Well, in my nation, people give opinion to each other even when no body is asking. I am also a kind of person who likes to motivate others and motivation is the greatest weapon to change someone’s life.

Here I am going to talk about a time when I gave my opinion to one of my friends. Actually, my friend Aman who was very disappointed for her study. I vividly remember when I was in 12th standard, she met with an accident. Due to her leg fractured, she had to take rest for 2 months. Her exams were also near.

She got worried about her exams because her syllabus was not completed. At that time, she told the whole situation to me and asked about my opinion like what she had to do next. Because she knew that I always give the right viewpoint to her. I listened carefully and took sometime to think about that situation.

After a few moments, I inspired her to study day and night otherwise her whole year could be wasted. She agreed upon my words and decided to do work on my suggestion. Even she covered her whole syllabus. When her result came, she was extremely happy because she got unexpected grades and she thanked me. Moreover, I also felt very glad after giving my opinion to her because I saved her precious year. So, this was the time when I gave my opinion to Aman.
