When is it ok to Assume?

I go on swell. I hit the record button. I fill out the caption. I choose the categories. I do not invite people. Wink, wink. And I hit post. The post is made. I see the post in the latest. Should I then assume this will happen every time? Is it safe to assume that if you go through the process in making a swell, that the swell will be published and you will be able to see it in the latest?

Don’t look at, I don’ t have the answer. 👀 #assume #commonsense #philosophy

I had to hit reply on this one because I think there's two ways to look at this. One is assuming is a relaxing position because it takes the burden off of contemplating the opposite of assumption, which is things that aren't going to happen and what if then? But assuming is sort of a relaxing space where you put a little faith into the next set of situations. I assume when I wake up, the sun will rise with me. Those are things that calm me down

They can expect the worst of this, the worst of that. In a way, and this is just my standpoint, I wonder, what do you think of this, Deborah, we are encouraged more to expect things than to assume. We get chastised for assuming. But I don't know so much for expectation. Because if your expectation aligns with someone else's expectation, right. It can be a bias that can be mutual to where it can breed community

I think semantics in this particular moment are very interesting because the context is very important to these words as well. Yeah, I'm looking forward to some more voices here

But in regards to the assumption versus expectation discussion, yeah, I do find it interesting that there's negative connotations to assumptions, but not so much with expectations. Obviously, both in its maximum state is not a good thing. If you assume too much or if you expect too much, you know, it can be bad for you. And actually, my dating mantra is that I am not. I come with no expectations

It's a part of us. It's. It's how we are programmed to assume that everything will go according to plan. Even waking up every day, let me set, you know, I set my alarm for 05:00 in the morning. I assume that I'm gonna wake up. Sometimes I don't. I'm just gonna be honest with you. Sometimes I don't assume. Sometimes I'm like, man, let me clean up
