Negative Assumptions:
“He didn’t talk to me this morning. He must not like me.”

"Grazia" by Mimi Stuart
Live the Life you Desire

So what I really meant was…

“He was probably upset, preoccupied, or rushed by something else.”

Don’t take things personally. We don’t know what others are thinking.

Your assumptions about other people’s feelings can influence how they feel. So don’t assume the worst. If the behavior continues, ask if he’s all right.
