There is nothing that will tear a relationship apart faster than when someone is willing to believe anything they hear without getting all the facts. I heard this quote recently that I just love:
Anyone can find the dirt in someone. Be the one who finds gold. ~ Anonymous
We can avoid a lot of heartache and a lot of trouble if we adopted this characteristic in our lives. Now sometimes those things we hear end up being true but when we choose to believe the best but find out the opposite, I believe there is power in that and we can then in a healthy way begin to work through those things.
