What if... no one ever assumed?
Too much to hope for, do you think..?
Assumptions can ruin friendships and lives and not just to those around you. It can also harm yourself. If I could engrave this in every mind, I would... NEVER ASSUME! Have good, solid proof before you draw any conclusions whatsoever.
Now, if we could read minds and hearts with people and, in essence, be God, this might be a different story (though, then it wouldn’t be called assuming). But, since we can’t and never will be, it’s not worth pretending.
