Don't Make Assumptions

Don Miguel Ruiz' Third Agreement is "Don't Make Assumptions."

Instead of making assumptions about things that happen in your life, why not ask questions?

If someone seems to slight you, reject you, or ignore you, don't immediately jump to the assumption that it has anything to do with you. The person could just be preoccupied with their own stuff. Instead, the next time you see them, state that you saw them but they did not acknowledge you...

"...Just checking to make sure everything is okay with you?"

Don't accuse, criticize, point fingers or judge ~ simply ask. It's about being true and authentic, yet we can do the truth in love.

"Jumping to conclusions must never be the only exercise you ever get!"
Coach Carolyn
