One of the reasons modern day society is so full of sadness and loneliness is because we make lots of assumptions about each other.
Sadness and loneliness does not come from the assumptions made that people are bad/dangerous/racist/bigoted/mean/etc.
It is actually quite the opposite.
It is the assumptions that people are better/happier/wealthier/smarter/healthier/prettier/etc. than we are that really drives us to feel unhappy and disconnected.
Always check your assumptions.
Remember that no one and no one’s life is perfect. We are all human. And we could all use more true connection and conversations.
