assumptions really do get you nowhere

living life assuming things will only lead to misunderstanding.

When you believe something without even bothering to ask, you need to rethink that belief.  More than likely, it's false.

Sure, anyone can have assumptions about others but when you know the person and actually talk to them, then why aren't you trying to see if what you assume is true or not?

If you want to keep your assumption a secret then that's fine; if you're acting in a negative way by holding on to that assumption about another person, then your judgement will forever be flawed until proven right.

I don't know why more people don't realize this.  If you're going to judge an individual because of an assumption you have about them when you can easily confront the person about it, then I'd hate to say this, but you fail at life.

  1. the only thing i have to add to your blog is that people are never just black and white, and from my experience confronting someone usually leads to one of three things happening
    one.) the person confirms your thoughts about them
    two.) the person denys your thoughts, so you were wrong
    three.)the person denys your thoughts, but they are lying so you are right but its not proven.
