Don’t Assume Anything

One of the key things I love in life, which makes the world great in my opinion, is that everyone doesn’t like the same things or think alike. Yet, I’ve discovered on so many separate occasions that a number of disagreements between close family members or friends stems from one side having the mindset that they shouldn’t have to tell the person they have an issue with what is wrong and just assume the other individual should just know.

However, that is definitely not the type of attitude you want to have and I’m about to explain why. One of my golden rules in life is to “Treat others how I want to be treated” Therefore, just like I’m hoping you wouldn’t want someone that you care about to have an issue with you and not let you know about it, why would you want to do that to another person?

Also, don’t go telling other people about the issue you have with an individual on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter when you haven’t taken the time to address the issue with the source, especially if you know where they live to meet with them in person to talk or have the person number to give them a call about it. I will ask the question once again, which is ” Do you want somebody to do that to you?”

Last, it’s important to have a discussion with the individual that you’re mad or disappointed in with the intent to listen and understand instead of listening to reply because the two of you might of been looking at things from different perspectives, where neither one of you is actually right or wrong and the other person honestly might not of had any clue of what they did before you told them.
