Assumptions?

December 9, 2010

Ok, so here’s the thing, I just typed what I wanted to post and I don’t know what happened but the text disappeared and the undo button doesn’t seem to work. So I will try my best to re-write it and hopefully make it sound better.

How many times have you assumed things that ended up being false? Well, you’re not the only one, we’ve all been there. How many times have you assumed things that ended up being false and got you in some sort of trouble? Well, you’re not the only one. We have all been there, it is after all completely normal. It one of those lessons that were never going to learn, we just have to learn to keep our assumptions to ourselves. Were always going to have assumptions, it’s just how it goes. Actually no, I havent had the honor of meeting 6 billion people so I can’t really say that. But it is completely natural to hear about lets say a conflict and simply assume who started it. And yes, of course, you’re not always going to be right, simply because you don’t have proof to support your “assumptions” that’s why they’re called assumptions to begin with. As for the other times you were right, it was just probably a lucky guess. We just need to learn to stop making our assumptions public.

On the other hand, if the situation concerns you, sometime you do need a “friend” to help you get through the problem. Choosing that “friend” is essential, because you are trusting this person with your thoughts and feelings. Setting trust aside, you need to have someone who understands that making assumptions can be out of anger or sadness. This person also needs to understand that making assumptions is normal, it’s just a way  to get things to make sense in your head. Even though they may be wrong, this is why assumptions should be kept on the down-low.

My next point is: sometimes people tend to confuse assumptions for hope. First of all, what is an assumption and what is hope? An assumption is a thing that is accepted as certain to happen without proof, while hope is a desire for a certain thing to happen. Can you see the connection? Sometimes we assume things that we hope are true. Why would you be certain something is true yet keep hoping for it to be true? So in the end that assumption is really hope. It is hope because you aren’t certain that it will happen, you’re hoping for it to happen.

I hope I didn’t confuse anyone. I really want to know what you think, so what do you think?
