Kimberism: When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself. Louis Nizer Has your life ever been twisted accidentally, or intentionally by someone else's interpretation? Recently I was horrified when my daughter informed me that her friend found a random photograph of me lunching with two girl friends that had been twisted into a story on a stranger's blog.
Like most of us, I've experienced judgment and rumors spun about me many times. Who hasn't heard that the acronym for FEAR: false evidence appearing real? Often inaccurate interpretations are based in fear. Many people build themselves up, or tear others down based on fear around what they lack.
The best thing to do when fear causes someone to lash out with a false interpretation is to skip away without looking back in the rear view mirror. Because when we ourselves react in judgment we easily will be distracted and veer off our route. How many times have you judged someone only to find yourself stumbling in the same pothole? Be careful who you judge lest you trip and fall!
There can always be a positive outcome from difficult experiences if we have eyes to see them. Recognizing other's false interpretations, or our own can serve to usher in greater clarity in the long run. Have you stopped to examine if your interpretations are accurate?
