We tend to get ourselves into sticky situations when we make assumptions about things and people. We overanalyze about people on one interaction and think we have everything figured out about them. Or we think there is something going on with a friend we haven’t spoken to in a while and we assume things are “off” between the two of you. Or you get into an argument or disagreement with someone and we assume we are right and they are wrong. Does this mindset really work for us in the long run? No.
This mindset just creates distance between people we could be really cool with or between people who were once close with. Instead of making assumptions on what you think is, ask. Ask what’s wrong. Ask what’s up. Ask how people are doing. It’ll make a world of a difference and it’ll open conversations with people who may really need us and we may really need them. We could be building better relationships with others and we could build a better communication skill within ourselves. It’s definitely a win-win situation. Why not choose this instead of over analyzing and assuming so much? So get to talking and appreciating more. – Peace and Love
