Happy with assumptions

I was asked an apparent question today. We come across such questions which has the answer which the person asking wants to hear. In a way that person is just seeking your confirmation to what he already believes in. The question is not relevant, the structure is. It was like asking someone,
"You are not hungry are you?" rather than "Are you hungry?"
On top of that even I was not sure about the answer to the question which I was asked. I replied,
"I prefer to believe it."
"Why do say that?" I was asked again.
Why did I say that?  I said that because that’s the reality. We prefer to believe in many things in life and accept it as the truth. But, is it necessary that everything is true which we believe? Even if we have doubt about certain things, we give it a benefit of doubt, accept it in a way which makes us happy and continue. That person agreed with my explanation and added,
"I agree that 50% of our life is assumption."
I defer. Almost everything is assumption. If we do not program ourselves to such a behavioral pattern, we will drive ourselves nuts worrying about almost everything. There are very few, almost minimal things which you can be sure of in life. The more such things are in your life, the more happy you are.
