Why do we always assume the worst of things and in most cases you find it to be untrue.
As the saying goes "Never assume, for it makes an ASS out of U and ME." -
Why do people assume the worst of things and in the end whatever we assume majority of the times tends to be completely wrong. I always found that digging deep into something without first thinking things through you will find just what you don't want to see or get what you are not ready to get.
So what makes us assume the worst of things?
- Constant lies
- The past, such as a cheating ex
- Being nosy, snooping, eavesdropping
- Listening to friends/people
- The lack of trust
How can we know the truth without assuming? Should we just talk it out with the person first or just let it go altogether? I think that before you assume it is best to talk it out to find out what is going on. There have been times where I assume the worst and jump to conclusions and end up getting hurt in the end. Most people find themselves in the same situation. How can you regain trust from those who you have this assumption about? Should you explain yourself, give them time to heal and grow or just them go. Most of the time, trust is broken so there is no coming back. So for those who assume things or the worst in people, take it from me, just keep your mouth closed until you can actually speak with that someone or see them in action to know the truth!
In the end, you wouldn't have made an ASS out of yourself!
