    Assumption kills like poison
    When this happens you assume
    When that happens you assume
    Most times the things you assume and carry in your mind are not always true but they continue to weigh you down.
    – ONE DAY I WENT FOR A PARTY, ON REACHING THERE A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE ALREADY SITTED BEFORE ME
    SO I SAW WHERE THE OLDER PEOPLE WERE SITTING AND I WENT THERE TO GREET THEM
    WHEN I REACHED THERE, I STARTED GIVING THEM HANDSHAKE ONE BY ONE
    BUT WHEN I REACHED ONE OF THEM AND BROUGHT OUT MY HAND TO SHAKE HIM, HE IGNORED ME.
    WHEN I SAT DOWN, I WAS STILL VERY MUCH ANNOYED WITH THE MAN
    I SAW HIM AS A SNUB UNTILL I NOTICED THAT OTHER PEOPLE TOUCH HIM FIRST BEFORE GIVING HIM A HANDSHAKE.
    THIS WAS WHEN I NOTICED THAT HE WAS BLIND-
    You see what ‘ASSUMPTION’ can cause.
    MOST TIMES ONE ASSUMES SOMETHING THAT IS NOT AS IT IS AND HIS/HER FALSE ASSUMPTION KILLS HIM/HER SLOWLY LIKE A POISON.

    The mans eyes were very wide open but he was blind so he could not even see me not talking of seeing my hand to shake.
    But I have assumed that he is a snub and that he hates me which is not true.

    Assumptions are really wearisome. Its like jumping into conclusion with a big stone tied to the waist but that is for when the assumption is false.

    What if the assumption is right or can’t they ever be?

    Rather than staying to think up things in your head, why not confront the person and confirm the intention for their action(s) to clear your doubt?

    Assumption is like wild fire_ it kills every other thought and frees the only thought that’s in agreement with it… We should be careful on what thoughts we allow to take dominion in our lives, even when we perceive something to be so wrong we should not be quick to assume,, assumption brings quick judgement.

    Like @samson said, Assumption can be right most of the time if intelligence is applied.

    BUT Don’t just assume, be a good observant too.

    One day, a friend of mine visited me, we were cracking jokes and everyone was laughing, at first I assume he was happy, but I noticed despite the laughter, something is still off about him, then I asked him what’s wrong, he felt reluctant to tell me what was the matter but he later told me he quarreled with his father just before coming to my place to think it off.

    As a person, am very reserved, I don’t just talk to people especially if you are a stranger but they ”assume” it is pride, and am not proud, so because of this, Instead of them to come closer to me to talk in order to know the kind of person I am, they’ll rather keep off and they’ll save it in their mind that ”oh! God! He’s too proud”.

    That’s the power of assumption.

    @adebulu, since you know you are not proud, and you feel they think or see you as someone who has pride (which is an assumption also), then why not break the jinx?? I mean you can walk up to them, initiate a conversation, that way, you all will clear yourselves about your thoughts.

    Assumptions most times we can’t help it…

    As humans we tend to jump into unneccessary conclusions either because of our Ego or because we want to score cheap points or satisfy ourselves.

    It takes patience to calm down and observe before jumping into conclusions.
