"Seeing is believing."

This is a very good quote indeed. What it means is - do not just believe in hear-says and your own assumptions, you need to SEE the FACTS before you can really believe them and make your decision.

In the many turmoils, dilemmas, and hear-says that my family has been through these few months due to a trouble, I am glad that most instances we did not rely on hear-says for making decisions. Unfortunately, the trouble actually was seeded from 'hear-say'.

Hearing alone often is not good enough because what you hear are just people's thoughts and perceptions and sometimes could be misinterpreted or outdated information. Search and dig - reports, official information, authority's websites, verify the info and then formulate your own thoughts and judgments. If you base your decision on arbitrary information, you are taking a risk, you are putting the ball in someone else's court, you are playing on luck.

A side note - seeing with your heart is different from seeing with your mind. Some things can be made up to appeal to your visual sight, some things are deliberately made seen in order to deceive (eg. not what it appears to be). One has to connect the dots and view the issues objectively in the mind and not be too stunned emotionally.

Have faith, trust your facts, trust your instincts, do not be swayed by others, fight on (ganbatte to myself)!
