Don Miguel Ruiz says by making assumptions we confuse our own ideas with the truth of things. An example of the way this can hurt us is if we assume someone knows what we want from them, so we feel hurt when they don't give it to us instead of asking for what we need. Or we want to talk to someone about something but we are so sure of their reaction we decide not to bring it up and then feel resentful because of their attitude, when maybe if we had talked about our problem or idea we would have gotten the response we needed, but we never gave it a chance. Try to notice when you are making assumptions and ask yourself if there is a way that these assumptions may be delaying or defeating your true understanding.
