When a person presumes rather than find out the facts, they are usually wrong. If you presume and then begin speaking, you may end up with a bigger problem. For example, a person partially overhears a conversation, then they instantly presume not only that they heard correctly, but in addition probably something negative. When I wrote “Misplaced Trust” it was based on my experience as a Paralegal. Relatives presumed they were going to inherit items or worse yet that the items belonged to them and no one else. Why this type of behavior? It’s simple. It is always about the money. They want any items that may be of value, but not for sentimental reasons. It’s all about how much they make if they sell it. It sounds cold and heartless and that is because it is. Many individuals have the foresight to plan ahead and put on paper what they want to occur. It doesn’t always happen, but for the majority of individuals their wishes are honored. If you are the person in charge and you presume everyone will cooperate with you, you are in for a rude awakening. It’s sad, but it’s real life. In everyday life, individuals often assume things and then after taking their foot out of their mouth, figure out the best approach to apologize. If one thinks before they speak, and don’t assume, they will be better off. It is great to assume you had a stellar interview and you will be hired. It’s good to have hope. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always occur. Rather than let it destroy you, or make you give up hope, just move on to the next position. However, their loss is someone else’s gain. When Cory rode into town, Fred presumed that he was another person like Bad Bart. He quickly learned that he was Gus’s cousin.
