“Giving others the benefit of the doubt allows them to do the same for you. Reciprocal respectful treatment leads to solid relationships”
We are often too quick to judge the actions and motivations of others. When things don’t go specifically as they should, we too often look to place blame. We tend to jump to conclusions.
Instead of looking first to place blame, look to give others the benefit of the doubt. Hold off on thinking someone is the problem until you have established evidence. You want others to do this for you so do it for others.
This is especially important when evaluating motivations. Don’t make assumptions.
