The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Don’t make assumptions!

This is another one of the agreements, that I find challenging. We tend to assume, people do, say and react certain ways to us, because they like us, they dislike us, they want something, they are jealous, and so on…. But reality is that we can never know why a person does or says anything, we can never know what another person is thinking and why they think that, we usually assume the worst. That seems to be most of our default settings. I find that when I have assumed something, I am usually wrong, and when others have assumed something about Me, they are wrong. We don’t have the same motivations, we don’t want the same things, what is important to us, may not be important to another, not to mention we all see the world and reality thru our own unique lenses.
