Reading time: 1-3 minutes

Do you create a lot of assumptions every day?

I like to call an assumption as "spontaneous nature of judgment". As human beings, we like to anticipate the things before they happen. But the thing is, we know that it's not always gonna happen.

Assumptions never really come from in-depth research. You know what I'm saying?
Creating assumptions is probably one of the easiest thing to do. And probably you don't even realize when you're doing so.

But assumptions are not only about the upcoming events that could happen. Assumptions could also be about what others thinking and feeling towards anything. For some reasons, the "assumptions mode" would be easily switched on when it has something to do with yourself. Your so-called intuitions start wandering inside your mind, telling you to do this and do that. Then when it finally reaches your feelings, God knows what you're gonna do afterwards. Assumptions are SO strong that it urges you to do what it wants you to do, and feel what it wants you to feel.

Assumptions are dangerous, though.

Remember Romeo and Juliet? Now that's an easy example of how one terrible mistake could come from an assumption. 

Sometimes, good deeds or surprises come from correct assumptions though.
Still, we would never have perfectly correct assumptions in our life. 

One thing to keep in mind is, too much is never a good thing.

So don't rely too much on your assumptions, but don't stop assuming as well.

Be careful with your assumptions, buddy. It could do harm to you and those around you.
