Making assumptions leads to suffering. When we assume what others are thinking, it can create stress and interpersonal conflict because you begin to see the story you’re making up in your head as a representation of the truth.
Mel Robbins said that our need for “closure” is another form of people-pleasing. You want the other person to take away your discomfort…
In any situation, there is always something you can do or say to steer it in a different direction.
Realize that your own toxicity may be letting your ego assume shit that hasn’t even happened.
Thank you Mel Robbins + thank you Walter Lucky Church Simons 🤗
