Assume but based on whose “facts” and are they facts or fabrications?

This conundrum kicks in on our own, and is further complicated when others become involved.
The added element mixes up the brew that is true from that which is false.
In my experience interaction with others on the road to discover the truth can be a two-edged sword. 🙂
Nature is teaching me to assume nothing, because almost every time I do I’m wrong. Now I just need to apply what I’ve learned to other areas of my life. Not as easy as it sounds.
A balance of attempts to change and attempts at acceptance, I believe.

If only I were not quite so forgetful. 🙂
