Online Dictionary defines ASSUME as: To take for granted, or without proof; to suppose as a fact; to suppose or take arbitrarily or tentatively.I know 'ass' is an indecent word in relation to our human fleshy part that we sit on. But an ass is also an animal a little smaller than horse like a donkey, one that is known for its stupidity and obstinacy.
Have you ever been in a position you think your friend would surely do that something for you,you bet your life on it and the truth hits you in the face when it didn't come true? Have you ever assumed your friend was doing a bad thing, you are so sure you told another friend and turns out its totally untrue?
So to simply put, most of the time when we assume, we make an ass out of ourselves and sometimes in the expense of another person. If we are unsure of someone's actions, we should let it be until truth reveals,don't let it bother our mind for it will become a fact and what we speak out from our mouth are the contents of our heart. You know how gossips can ruin a person? Truth is better than assumption so go for the right one. This statement makes me think twice before i make a judgement out of an assumption. Just my thoughts!
