To what extent should we let others influence our decisions?
I'd say that it's important to be surrounded by people who may have a different opinion. Perhaps it is even valuable to have them talk you into something, so you can decide how to react and discover what you truly believe in. No, you don't have to go along with something if you don't want to, but it can help you make the big decision.
Maybe you're so sure certain about something that you don't need any guidance from others, but I don't think it can hurt. What's important is asking questions and having conversations.

I'm a big believer in letting people have their say - after all, we supposedly live in a country of free speech. However, and it's a BIG however, I do not like being told what to think, even by those in so-called authority including the leaders of our country.
Here's one example: the Government chooses our "enemies", sending the military to fight their battles, but if I don't have a personal grudge against those people, then they aren't my enemies, so I couldn't and wouldn't seek to kill them.
So yes, listen but think for yourself, using reason and commonsense.

Critical thinking is always the key in making your own decisions which you alone are responsible for.
