“Improperly understood or interpreted”.
I think it’d be fair to say that I spend a large portion of my day to day life being misunderstood.
This is phenomenally annoying and frustrating.
This is not because I am unable to speak clearly and put across a point succinctly.
Quite the opposite in fact.
It’s more to do with being born a frank and direct person and living in a country where it seems to be much better to be wishy washy and beat around the bush – and never actually say what it is you really mean.
People seem to take being frank and to the point as meaning you are either arrogant or aggressive.
Is that right?
And does that really make me arrogant?
Why is frankness and being direct - associated with arrogance?
Or is that only the case when you are around people who lack confidence?
I don’t know… I’m just tired of it all.
I’m SO over being “misunderstood”.
Think I’ll just stop talking to people – unless I REALLY have to.
It might make my life a lot easier and stress free.
