What I'm trying to point out in this thread, is that opinions and assumptions
are what create conflicts, and if you think that someone is trying to say
that he/she "knows" everything and that he/she is the epitome of correct
information, and anyone who disagrees with him/her is either a) stupid, b)
misinformed, c) can go straight to hell, or d) all of the above
will KNOW for sure and can simply IGNORE that persons posts or threads.
This is much better than feeling PAIN after/during reading someone posts
that cause you that kind of suffering/stuggle.
In other words stop ASSUMING and simply aks!
...and everyone knows that saying about making ass
...By the way, I perfectly understand the desire to be sure about things, but
making an ASSUMPTION is not the same as getting an ANSWER directly, and
this is what I recommend. Once you have an answer you don't need to assume
anything...you will have the answer.
...and the second part, is not to take things so personally, because if you don't
take it personally, there can be no pain or struggle either.
...so if one stops assuming and taking things personally, it is very possible to reduce
the majority of the conflicts in life, and the majority of the pain/struggle we experience.
