Why we always need facts to argue our points of viewIt is very easy for any of us to get into arguments over anything. However, we need to get all the facts ready, before we even start arguing about anything, at any point in time.
Whether it is the presumed bad behavior of our child, based on some feedback from one teacher,or a information received from the Corporate Office, without any official communication, we should always wait for the confirmed news, with all facts. For facts, are always expressed through circulars, or inter-office communications and so on. We need to be ever vigilant and not talk through our hat.
In the offices, if we depend on hearsay, or unconfirmed news, that is always dangerous. Similarly, even in our houses, we need to find out the actual truth.
Many mothers, for example, only believe their children, and pick up quarrels with some other child's parents, without verifying facts. For, the story may have another side too. This has to be verified. It we do not check this, we can get into serious trouble.
Such examples abound. We should always do our best to minimize the damage of any such situation, where we had acted without verifying facts.
And we should change our attitude to always seek the truth, the bare facts, at all times.
