When You Look For Trouble, It Will Rear Its Head

Sometimes curiosity can cause us to stumble. There are times when we dig for answers to only discover our suspicions were unfounded. The lack of trust revealed by taking such measures creates a divide that isn’t easily repairable.

No one likes to be accused of wrongdoing when they’re making every effort to do what’s right. Our past experiences or guilty conscience can cause us to be overly suspicious of others – questioning every move and second-guessing motives. While we should be cautious and wise in our dealings, we should not assume that every action is ill-intended.

On the other hand, you may have one thing in mind that you are searching for and happen upon other things not meant for you to see. Ultimately, you have to deal with the consequences of your actions.

Don’t Assume

Wrong assumptions lead to faulty conclusions. As the saying goes, “when you assume, you make an Ass out of U and Me.”

We tend to make assumptions about everything, especially as it pertains to people. That’s why it’s critical to engage in a little fact-finding before concluding. Don’t automatically assume that someone’s motives are wrong, even if it initially draws suspicion.

Assuming the worse about the intentions of another can cause you to overlook the good they may bring into your life. Healthy skepticism is not wrong in itself, but exercising wisdom goes a lot further.
