I Am Distressed When People Misunderstand Me

    My Fault...

    Being a stong communicator I believe that if someone misunderstands me it is because I didn't make myself clear. Sometimes this really bothers me especially if the misunderstanding upset the other person.

    Love and Hate

    Misunderstanding is one of the most commen reasons relationships end. It drives me insane when people start yelling and screaming over something thats not even true, they just thought it was because they misunderstood

    Its Difficult When People Who Love You Misunderstand You and Start Hating You

    One of the unbearable things in life. Its strange how people become uncommunicable and how misunderstanding causes them to go from strong love to strong hate for you.

    I am always misunderstand in this site and it keeps me distressed. Many keep thinking bad about my intention. Many misinterpret my actions and words. Someone already did call me an obsessed brat. Many always judge me and I hate it!

    The Point

    I won't go that far saying I get distressed.People tend to misunderstand me (well I think).  I say, instead of jumping to conclusion, why don't they speak up first if they misunderstood, instead of getting hurt or for whatever reasons there can be.I won't say it never happened...

    I need to feel understood. I go to great pains to make what I'm saying make sense to those around me, and especially people close to me. When they don't understand what I want, need or am trying to impart to them, it hurts me almost physically. I don't know why it is...
