Being empathic

Assumptions negatively affect our relationships in several ways. Not only do we unconsciously make assumptions and judgments about other people’s behaviour, and other people’s intentions behind their behaviour but we make assumptions about our own behaviour and intentions. When we make assumptions, we project these assumptions on to others or ourselves and then make judgments the downward, closed-thinking spiral continues; worsening our connections with our inner self and others.

To have better connections and understanding with others it is necessary to put aside our assumptions and really listen to what is being said.
