“The Benefit of the doubt,” when I hear people say that, I think it’s insane. In what way is there any benefit in doubt? When you think about it, the moment you hear the word “doubt” you start getting nervous and you start thinking there is a real problem. Rather, the intent of “benefit of the doubt” is actually one that is supposed to repair things as opposed to making them worse. So, change the wording from “the benefit of the doubt” to “the benefit of the trust” or “the benefit of the confidence.” When you say that it seems like it is repairing things rather than making them more divisive. So, change it from “doubt” to “trust” and see what happens.
