Why you should not make assumptions – The Third Agreement (The Four Agreements)
We only hear what we want to hear and see what we want to see. We have the habit of dreaming with no basis in reality. We literally dream things up in our imagination when we don’t understand situations. These dreams are called ‘assumptions’.
We have the tendency to make assumptions about everything that others are doing and thinking. The problem with making assumptions is that we believe that they are the truth. But when you think about it, we are afraid to ask questions to get clarification, so we make assumptions.

This is what tends to happen: We take it personally, then blame them, and then respond by sending emotional poison with our word.
The human brain is quite funny when you think of it. When someone says something, we make assumptions. But when someone doesn’t say anything, we make assumptions as well. We assume that everyone thinks the way we do, feel the way we feel, judge the way we judge, and abuse the way we abuse. All because we lack the courage to ask questions. We have agreed that asking questions isn’t safe.
