Do you want to erase drama and suffering from your life? Then don’t make assumptions. Instead of jumping to conclusions, find out what’s really going on and let it go. Do your best to clarify the situation and clear the air. If the other person doesn’t respond, then at least you tried.
You’ll be amazed at the amount of pain and suffering you can avoid by doing this. And by making this agreement with yourself, you will also be reducing the pain and suffering of other people and the world in general. To begin with, make the decision to spend just one day observing how many times you are making assumptions about other people’s behavior. We also make assumptions about ourselves, and those assumptions usually sell us short. We often assume we aren’t capable of doing something before we even try.
Most of the time, assumptions are just poison in our life. They cut us off from others and from reality. Don’t make assumptions, and you will break free from this nightmarish cocoon. And then you’ll return to what is real, tangible, and true. Then you’ll be saying, “Yes!” to life almost every day.
