What are you assuming?


"What concerns me is not the way things are, but rather the way people think things are." -- Epictetus

"Can I ever know you Or you know me?" -- Sara Teasdale

Where do you make assumptions about how another person thinks or feels?

Assuumptions Relationship Questions

We can never know with certainty how someone else thinks or feels unless they tell us. So donít assume anything. Ask!

Ask "How are you feeling?" rather than "You must be feeling angry (or frightened or sad...)"

Inquiring respectfully about another's experience opens the door to true and deep connection. Everyone wants to feel heard, recognized and understood.

"The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them." -- Ralph Nichols
