I hate when people make assumptions and think that they know everything that is going on.

Last night I received an email from a good friend of mine who said she was concerned, angry, and felt used and disrespected.  And it frustrated me and hurt so bad.  I can understand where she may be upset on some levels, but there was so much more behind the things going on than she got a chance to see.  The things she saw were barely even the surface.  And she didn’t ask questions before taking things personally and getting offended.  And it hurt.

But then I realized, we all seem to do this.  We jump to conclusions and we make judgments without all the facts.  Why is this?  Because we are an instant society.  We base everything on right-this-second and not very often do we have or take the time to dig for more.  I do it too.

But it took this experience for me to realize that I really do just need to slow the hell down.  Take my time.  Because not everything happens at the snap of a finger, and not everything is as it seems.

    This is so true, and something I really needed to read right now.

    Darling you are so right. “We jump to conclusions and we make judgments without all the facts. Why is this? Because we are an instant society. We base everything on right-this-second and not very often do we have or take the time to dig for more. ” No one could say it better.
