    backwards with one's opinions?

    "Of course. She gave me the shack fifteen years ago and I built straight away. Never backwards with her opinions, as you know -- she told me she really liked it except for the main bathroom."

    Is it saying don't say or do anything against her opinions?

    No. It's saying that she always says exactly what she thinks, even if it's not what you want to hear.

    We also have the saying, "He/she's not backward at coming forward" to describe someone who's full of self-confidence.
