Whenever you are dealing with family, friends, neighbors or even in court, you frequently hear accusations without proof. If a neighbor claims your dog left a present on their lawn, and you know that is not true, they will persist even though they have no proof. If you live in an HOA they can cause a world of aggravation for you but even the board members will expect a picture to prove accuracy. In my HOA cats are allowed to roam free. One day a cat came on my patio and I told it to leave and never return. It has not come back. When family members make accusations they rarely can prove what they are saying. The majority of the time they are wrong. I saw an article today about narcissists. It clearly stated that whatever they are accusing a person of it is exactly what they have said or done. In many courtrooms, one side will always make accusations against the other side. The smart attorney will only address the facts so that the judge will rule in their client’s favor. Today, society does tend to be accusatory about almost everything. The media often destroys an individual’s reputation by printing articles that are basically false. The person they have posted about ends up spending time and money in the hopes of getting the facts out. Usually, if it is not a celebrity, whatever was said ends up remaining against a person almost indefinitely. People should think before they speak. It could prevent hurt feelings and problems.
