Today’s Lifetalk was about assumptions, how we assume things about other people, events, and ourselves. I don’t want to be pedantic, but I did find myself having so much more to say than what we had time for. I wouldn’t have admitted it on my own, but assuming things is something that I, unfortunately, am really good at. Today’s Lifetalk had everyone split into random groups to discuss. I found myself having to confront that I make so many assumptions, and that they have a substantial role in my life. Not to go into an uncomfortable amount of detail, but I have come to learn that the core of fear, is assumption. I assume that something is bad, or will hurt me, and so I stay away. Today’s life talk called attention to that fact, and discussing with the other teens has made me resolve to assume less, especially about myself.
