don't make assumptions

ppl have a tendency to make assumptions.
ppl make assumptions about what others are thinking or doing, what motivates them, what their personal history is.. everything.

the problem with making assumptions is that the mind cannot differentiate between what is real and what is just a thought.
ppl create the stories themselves and believe they are the truth.

sometimes, i do also have a tendency to make assumptions.
i overanalyze on what someone has done or what ppl think or feel about me without checking the facts.

to make assumptions is an easy task.
but hey, that is not the way the world works!

by making assumptions, we tend to see what we want to see.
we tend to hear what we want to hear.
we do not perceive things the way they actually are.
and worse thing worst, we believe that they are right.

making assumptions leads to a lot of difficulties and misunderstandings.

just remember that we cannot read other ppl's mind.
and our thinking and style might be different from others.
what is important to us and what we believe are definitely not the same for others.

ppl do not have a same set of values.
so it is impossible for us to know why someone is how they are or does what they do.

don't complicate your life by making too much of assumptions.
or if you still want, ask questions to clarify before you jump into conclusion.
