The Danger of Making Conclusions with Incomplete Information
There is an inherent extreme danger when one makes assumptions about other people. Because of lack of complete knowledge and information, the natural instinct will push you to fill in the blanks yourself. This you will do primarily based on what you have heard from other people, though you lack the in depth knowledge concerning their basis of making such deductions in the first place. If you still have any blank spaces remaining, you will then resort to fill them in with your own deductions; based on your own assumptions or leaning on previous “similar” experiences. With all blanks now “filled-up”, you then begin to connect the dots to come up with a “conclusion”. In such circumstances, chances are extremely high that you will jump into wrong conclusions, and regret your messed up actions later on!

Ladies and gentleman, let us be patient enough to follow proper procedures when making decisions. Let us not be overrun by emotions at the expense of logical thinking and reasoning. If you meet a young lady wearing a skimpy boxer short, do not run into concluding that she has loose morals! Even netball players and other athletes also wear shorts that are revealing of their thighs! That does not make them loose; it is just a sporting requirement for flexible movement and participation. Within a short space of time they will be back home changing into their regular skirts and outfits; and cooking for their families. Again, if you bump into a mechanic as he comes out of fixing a broken down bus, he could be looking dirty with dripping oils smeared all over his face! That does not make him a dirty person at all. Within a short space of time he could be fully bathed-up and change into his magnificent suit, ready to serve you as an usher for a church service!

Only if we could be patient with the processes, we would not be facing some of the backlashes that are coming our way today. If we had taken a bit more time to research we would not have been crying foul today. If you had been prepared to spend a bit more time studying your ex-boyfriend, you wouldn’t be crying of a messed up opportunity today. If you had stayed a bit more at your previous job, you wouldn’t be crying of a lifetime opportunity thrown into the dustbin! All these regrets, and many others that are scattered in people’s lives, were mostly driven by poor decision making which was mostly based on hearsay and rumours! As a result wrong conclusions and interpretations were made; and here we are today facing an uphill task to undo the mess! Save yourself the daunting task of making corrections to something you can just do right the first time.

May God grant you the serenity to gather information, recollect the previous actions, and make informed decisions today; for a better tomorrow.
