About Misunderstanding Or Misunderstood
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

People can misjudge or misread our actions, whether be intentional or not. Thats where misunderstanding occurs and it can happen anytime anywhere. In this age where terror, violence and corruption thrive, its because of differences of values and beliefs or ideals and principles amongst brothers, families and friends ,among leaders, tribes and nations.

Misunderstanding when left unresolved leads to confrontation and later creates an enemy. Have you been misunderstood? Here are some of few examples where misunderstanding occurs. When you offer some help of any kind to someone in need then later only to find out that they are not appreciative and tell others that you are just showy or nosy. Or when you suggest or say something about your ideas others will say that you are just bragging on something else or always complaining. One more instance, when you visit your toxic in-laws and they kinda unresponsive because they think that you're a threat to their family member's attention and they later tell or invent stories against you or because its their nature to destroy relationships for their own advantage. It maybe the other way around, you could have misunderstood them because they treated you coldly and unfairly in all ther dealings and you cannot tolerate and try to avoid them. We should also examine ourself if we are doing something without realizing its outcome or it's just that others are full of negativity, insecurities, and pull its others down.

So, how do we deal with misunderstandings, dont you know that the most misunderstood person who ever lived on earth is JESUS CHRIST. Ironic, isn't it? when He was on earth, He was been misunderstood by those Scribes and Pharisees, even his earthly familes, His disciples and those closest to Him. Can we think more on JESUS, the sinless and righteous one, when others misunderstood or mistreated us. Let us follow his example he took all the pains and bear all sufferings, He was even unjustly hung on the cross because of His great love to His people.

In our own strength and perspective, we cannot easilyy forgive and forget those who misunderstood or mistreated us let us ask the help of the Lord to strenghten us, so that our capacity to love and show compassion to others will not be lessened or dimmed. Theres a saying that goes, to be great is to be misunderstood to be greater is to forgive and remember forgiving the one who offended you doesnt necessarily mean that you agree with that person's wrongs, but its a noble act to forgive, let go and let God.
