The Third Agreement: Don’t Make Assumptions

The Third Agreement: Don’t Make Assumptions

“All the sadness and drama you have lived in your life was rooted in making assumptions and taking things personally.”

It is a human tendency to make assumptions about everything. This usually arises from a fear to ask for clarification and ends in us trying to prove someone else wrong when we are the ones with misinformation. Making assumptions can be particularly detrimental in relationships. The frequent assumption in a relationship is that the other person knows you so well that they will always do what they want. When they don’t do what you assume they should do, you end up feeling hurt.
