We all make assumptions. It is human nature. When we don’t have all of the information regarding someone’s thoughts or intentions, we tend to “make up” what a person might be thinking or intending.
Making assumptions can get us into trouble. In this episode I talk about a personal story where I made a false assumption about someone and it only ended up hurting me.
In today’s digital age, texting/email/social media only exacerbate miscommunication. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to interpret someone’s tone in this form of communication.
When there are communication gaps between you and someone else, don’t be afraid to ask clarifying questions.
In the case where you are not able to do so or to get the answers you need, try to give the benefit of the doubt rather than assuming the worst.
Listen in to learn more about the perils of making assumptions in this short “Midlife Mindset Moment” podcast episode!
