Jumping to Conclusions!
Ok, I know I am not alone here because people have been fessing up to doing the same thing. It is called jumping to conclusions. Why do we all do it? Well let me give you an example. A couple weeks ago a friend of mine sent me an email. Well I did not respond to the email because it had inadvertently gotten placed in my junk mail folder. Sometimes that happens at our office, stuff just ends up in junk mail for no apparent reason. Anyhow, I try to periodically go through the junk folder for situations just like that one but two weeks had gone by. When I did see her sweet email I quickly replied and told her what had happened. She admitted that she thought maybe I was ignoring her, mad at her, or something of that nature. I wasn’t any of those things I just did not see the email. And truthfully even if I do see an email I might not always respond simply because of a time crunch. Last time I logged on my email I had 175 in my in box. So for that reason I tend not to respond to every single thing because I would spend my day doing nothing else.
So do I do this too? Heck ya! There was a couple who I had not see at church for two weeks and I thought they had left the church. Nope, just on vacation. I let my mind go at times too. I think if we are honest we will admit that we all do it. I have heard it called having a “hyper-sensitive radar”. Guilty as charged!
Why do you think we let ourselves go down paths we shouldn’t sometimes? I have my opinion but I want to hear yours. Hey, if you are real brave you can give an example, too! Go for it!
