Don’t make assumptions

I’m sure you have heard the saying when you assume you make and ass of u and me. Most of the time assumptions are wrong or off because they are not based in fact. They are usually based on someone’s past experience. While it is good to use your past experience, as I mentioned in Say “I’m sorry” to yourself to correct your mistakes, often times, assumptions get you in trouble when trying to predict the present or future.

When you assume something, you make a decision about the way something is without enough facts or information to support the decision. It is okay to question and explore so that you are educated, but it is not okay to make up the outcome because you are over thinking the situation. Do not confuse assumptions with intuition. Intuition is from the spirit and assumptions come from the brain.

If you are judging a book by its cover you can be wrong in more ways than one. There are many things that appear good on the outside but have no substance on the inside. Just the same there are things that may seem plain on the outside but are full of life and abundance on the inside.

Do your research and educate yourself. When you make assumptions you are not being fair to anyone involved in the situation including yourself. When you make assumptions the potential for someone to get hurt is greater, and that someone could be you. From now on get the facts. Don’t react on your thoughts alone. Be quiet and still until you know what is real. Don’t assume, experience.


Living in truth…Now That’s Presidential!
