Hi guys, today I write on presumptions, most people would have heard this story several times, but I would like to stress on the topic, people never take the time to look deep into facts before they conclude, from my school days I had always been a victim of hate and beef, from people who never knew me, but see me from a distance and call me names, well I would not blame them as Tuface and MI said, people must talk about you,
The major problems people have is concluding without proper investigations, what would you gain if you just conclude on an issue without checking through records, presumptions might lead to different negative things, like deformation of character, abuse of privileges, misjudge people, you might lose everything especially the good things in life because you failed to study happenings,
Please digest the story beneath;
There is a legend about a woman who had a faithful dog. This dog was so faithful that the woman could leave her baby with it and go out to attend to other matters. She always returned to find the child soundly asleep with the dog faithfully watching over him. One day something tragic happened, the woman as usual left the baby in the “hands” of this faithful dog and went shopping. When she returned, she discovered a rather nasty scene, there was a total mess, the baby’s cot was dismantled, nappies and clothes torn to shreds with bloodstains all over the bedroom where she left the child and the dog. Shocked, the woman wailed as she began looking for the baby, suddenly she saw the faithful dog emerging from under the bed, covered with blood and licking its mouth as if it had just finished a delicious meal. The woman went berserk and assumed that the dog had devoured her baby. Without much thought, she clubbed the dog to death. But as she continued searching for the “remains” of her child, she beheld another scene. Close to the bed was the baby, who although lying on bare floor was safe, and under the bed the carcass of a jackal torn to pieces in what must have been a fierce battle between it and the already dead dog. The dog fought to protect the baby from the ravenous jackal but it was too late because in her impatience and anger, she had killed the faithful dog.
“This calls for consideration; the need to be careful on how we are often quick to misjudge others, criticize, misinterpret based on myopic prejudice or even in some other cases tear them to shreds with harsh words, attitudes and actions before we actually have time to evaluate the situation. We can presume things based on hearsay, inadequate information, already biased attitude whereas a little patience can minimize or eliminate lifelong errors. “He, who judges a matter before hearing it, most times acts foolishly and makes irrational conclusions”.
