Believing we know others’ motivations, doesn’t serve us. It leads to a variety of mistaken assumptions that can negatively impact our relationships. Most of our ideas are projections based entirely on our own conditioning and experience and may have little to do with the actual thoughts and intentions of others. When we notice ourselves assigning a negative motive to behavior that we’ve found offensive or hurtful, the best thing we can do is ask them for clarification, without any hint of accusation. Honest and sincere communication brings the brooding darkness of faulty assumptions…

Into the light.
