THIS IS A CONFESSION POST

At times, when the things that you’ve said or done are being totally misunderstood by others?

Have you ever wonder?

Whose fault is this? 

Yours or the one who misunderstood you?

Most of the time, we might be in denial because deep inside because we knew that was not what we’ve meant in the first place.

There’s a saying in Chinese:

凡人畏果,菩萨畏因

A human is afraid of the consequence only after performing an action,

whereas the Bodhisattva starts thinking of the consequence before performing an action.

Yesterday, I’ve made a remark about an incident when I could choose to zip my lips and continue whatever I was doing.

It wasn’t any bad remark and the one who heard it didn’t really mind since we’ve been in the same group for many years and knew each other well enough to know that it was only a joking remark.

However, a person from another group had misunderstood my remark as a rebuttal and told Lovable Mom about it.

I felt really bad

Not because that person has misunderstood me

BUT FOR THE FACT THAT

I WAS THE ONE

Who has caused all those unnecessary misunderstandings.

Perhaps I have not been doing enough self-reflection and thus gotten carried away at times.  

This might be a sign telling me that I should start doing it more often in the future.

Found this picture at Ajaytao’s lovely blog and I am glad to be able to come out with some words of self-reminder in the following picture:

As always, I would like to thank Ajaytao for sharing with us so many wonderful and inspirational information.

It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way.

To keep your truth in sight you must keep yourself in sight and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image;

the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.

As I’ve mentioned in the first line of this post, this is my confession in order to become a better person than yesterday.

If you’ve been reading until this line, thank you for shining your light on me via your lovely readership supports.

My Monday may be a little gloomy, but I am sure the rest of the day would be marvelous, just like all other Mondays.

So, may you lovely souls have a Marvelous Monday ahead too!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀
