    I Avoid It

    So is it too much to ask for others to avoid it as well? Apparently. People make assumptions about me on a daily basis, and I am sick of being judged based on false assumptions! I feel like I am being held responsible for things I did not even do - which is...

    Time to End

    False assumption. Judging others or situations or ideas or making decisions ... based on fear, stereotypes, insufficient data, and so many more reason. False assumptions. They only tend to destroy and never build.

    Here We Go Again...

    Seriously, how hard is it to try to get to know someone or understand something before you judge? And if you don't like someone or something, then steer clear of them - that's what I do!

    I've Had A Few Made About Me, Lol.

    I guess I can understand sometimes that people might "wonder if.." stuff, but I think it's a bit stupid to make assumptions about people when you can just reserve judgement til you know the facts.. to me that seems more sensible.I've had assumptions made about me because of my...

    People are so quick to judge.

    They don't know me, or my story. They hear the rumors, they think they know the facts. When actually what they think they know, is completely false. Than when you try and talk to someone new, you get asked all these questions because they've heard so bad about you. Luckily, he...

    I'm mistaken for a flirt

    when I'm friendly, I'm mistaken for a ***** when I'm blunt, I'm mistaken for shy when I'm quiet. QUIT assuming and get to know me before assuming and/or judging me!

    Are You Still Making Assumptions?

    Did you know that what you say and how you say it directly affects the buying decision of your prospects? If you are not in tune with their desires, problems and wants then you will be unable to deliver powerful messages that resonate with them. Think about how YOU make your own...

    All The Time

    People make false assumptions about me all the time both in my everyday life and online. And it is true, I am sick of it. I wish they would stop. On EP I often have people assume things that are not true or that I have never said. I try to be thorough in stories without going...

    My Life Is Based On False Assumptions

    Don't Label Me

    I hate being labelled. People are constantly making assuptions about me because of my image. I dye my hair black and often wear black clothes, this does not mean I'm Emo or Goth or anything else. I don't belong to a group I'm just me. I recently decided to shave half my...

    Assume All You Want About Me. I Doubt It's True Until You Know Me.

    I can't claim that I don't assume things about other people. I can say that I try to avoid it because I don't know what their lives have been like at all so I have no real right to do any assuming. I think everyone in their own way does their own assuming. I have been in another...

    It's Been Happening All My Life.

    All throughout my life, people have been making false assumptions about me. The earliest and most recurrent false assumption I can think of is that I'm gay. Ever since about the age of 12 I have constantly been called 'gay', 'homo', '***', '******' and the like. I do have a lot...

    I Do This So Much!

    I was searching for a group that said something along the lines of 'I make assumptions', but this group is as close as it came. I don't want to blame other people for making assumptions, but I do, and it's because I do the same thing.
