Stop Making Assumptions

Doubt

Everybody makes assumptions; we do it all the time.

In part, we have to do so in order to navigate our environment. We assume that everybody will accept the US dollar as our common currency. We assume that we will have a job tomorrow.

If we wouldn’t make assumptions, we’d be a nervous wreck all day long. It’s a part of learning how to be in the world.

But then there are the kind of assumptions that are destructive. Especially in relationships.
