It's Best to #NeverAssume

I know. We all have done it. We think because we see a friend, colleague, family member, or celebrity in the glitz and glamour, that their lives are golden. However, sometimes that's not quite the case. We all have issues. Some of us are fortunate enough to deal with our issues better than others but what does that even mean?

I thought it would be well worth it to share how important it is for all of us to take people, in general, as they are. It's best to never assume anything about another individual regardless of what they show you on the outside. I believe William Shakespeare said it best:
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages."
It's a jungle out here. Unexpected events can creep up around any corner. When we allow ourselves to assume, we put too much energy and focus on the wrong things and give less emphasis on what really matters. We forget, in those moments, that we need each other. No one can live in this life alone without the support of another, right? Believe me, we all have bad days. I am no exception. I believe what makes us all so special and unique is who we really are inside and out. We are indeed human, which makes none of us perfect. So, with all that said, the best we all can do for each other, is hope for the best, pray for people, be wise in our counsel and who we have in our circle, then leave the rest up to God. He knows all our "real" business anyway.

Happy Hump Day,
