I am a changed woman…THANK YOU!! I recently heard your advice to a caller who you told “You can never rise above someone’s assumption of you!” Dr. Laura, this was a life changing moment for me.
I then reflected over my life. How many times have I assumed my husband would forget the bread that I asked him to pick up on his way home from work? How many times did I set people up for failure under my assumptions? In these few moments, I experienced a lifetime of change. I realized that in my assumptions, I forfeited grace and mercy. I forfeited living in the moment, giving someone the benefit of the doubt, fellowship, and sharing warm fuzzy feelings with my man! This is a price I no longer want to pay. Therefore, I release my assumptions of others and I let go of trying to correct others assumptions of me. Because just as you, “Mother Laura” stated there is “nothing I can do about it anyway.”
Blessings on your day!
