Let Them Misunderstand You
Misunderstandings Are Inevitable
Don’t you hate it when people misunderstand you?
When we recognize that this is inevitable some of the time, and redirect our energy into coming back home to the truth of what we know about ourselves, we re-empower ourselves.
This is a practice that isn’t always easy or successful but still worth our efforts.
Being misunderstood is often upsetting but inevitable some of the time.
While we can do due diligence in correcting misperceptions, some won't be able to shift.
Sometimes people "need" to see us in a particular way and nothing will change that.
Once we're the object of someone's projection, it's difficult for them to see us differently.
Accepting that we'l be misunderstood reclaims the power we give to others.
Letting go of trying to control other people's perceptions is a self-empowering act.
Coming back home to what we know to be true about ourselves is about reclaiming our lives.
This is a practice that's worth our energy.
