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 and so the downward, closed-thinking spiral continues ; worsening our connections with our inner self and others.
