Today is a bleak, bleak day. My heart aches, for I have been misunderstood.
It never is easy for me when someone takes my words or actions in a wrong way. Having to hear that he or she is hurt because of them makes my heart aches even more. What did I do to hurt you? would be the first question I ask and I'm sorry would definitely follow because deliberate offense is something I've sworn to delete in my vocabulary of actions since a long, long time ago. However, mistakes is something I cannot guarantee not to make in my life because no matter how advanced a human mind is, each of us thinks in very different ways from one another. The way I see it, some things are never really black or white, some can't always be right or wrong. There are things that are acceptable to myself, but unacceptable to others and vice versa. Our individual minds determine our choices and decisions, hopefully to make the right one at the end, or at least one that is the safest to people around us.
If there's one very important thing I learned from human relationships, is seeing things from both sides of the story. Yours and mine. There is always a reason behind every word and action, strangely enough, asking or listening always seems to be the last thing we do. Some gets emotional and let anger gets the best of them, some stay quiet and let assumptions eat them from inside.
So why was I misunderstood? My heart is still aching.
Different opinions and wrong assumptions. The very classic of all tales.
So my dear sister, brother, friend or any passer by in my life, I apologize deeply if you ever misunderstood me for my words or actions. Believe me when I say that hurting you deliberately would be the last thing I ever do. But please, never judge me or label me in your mind or even let others think differently of me before you demand my reasons. I think everyone deserves at least a tiny right of self-explanation.
That's my side of the story. What's yours?
