Today’s Lifetalk was on assumptions. When we went around in groups, and talked about assumptions we make, and why we make them, I realized how connected and similar everyone is. In my group, we talked a lot about how when we fear the unknown, we make snap judgements on the world around us. We may not like it when people assume things about us, but we are often quick to assume things about others. Assumptions are based upon the perception of an event or person that you have, and by allowing us to get to know a person, and experiencing an event first hand, we will no longer find ourselves classifying people by our thoughts, instead of who they truly are.
