my dear friend, Diane, thank you so much for your kind and loving words. The hard part is knowing that when something cannot be changed, we need to choose some level of acceptance, which you and I have both had far too much experience with, but also to find the meaning in the situation - the lesson to be learned. I do pray peace for you, wisdom & understanding, and mostly acceptance in whatever form that may take for you. Meditation is so valuable, as are those comforting, calm places we can create for ourselves. My arms are outstretched giving you a really big, really warm hug. (terri)

Terri, being misunderstood is very difficult. I believe it is one of the intrinsic desires and needs for every human being. When we meet up with people who don't understand, trying to communicate our thoughts, beliefs, needs, etc. can be a most exhausting challenge. Unfortunately, as you mentioned, PERSPECTIVE is something that we often cannot influence in another person's perception of our words. Sometimes it's very simple but too much is read into it. Other times, it's complex and our words are made into something too simple.
Having dealt with this myself recently, I see where you're coming from. It can be especially distressing when those relationships are important ones either professionally, scholastically, familial or with friends.
Blessings to you, my friend. I hope all is resolved and peaceful again. Please say a prayer for me too, as in my life today, the simple was made too complex and there really is no solution - must just rest my mind and meditate on calm places within my grasp. Some things can't be changed.
Diane
