I am only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand
I read this somewhere, it struck a chord & I tweeted it immediately.
I am getting tired of explaining what I said. I find that most of the time, we will not change our perspective of what we heard. I am guilty of this too hence use “we”.
Do we complicate things unnecessarily? Think too much into anything said/ heard?!
I used to be one of those who took the wysiwyg in this case wyhiwyg (hear) attitude. Not delve too deep, this is because I say what I think. I don’t tuck in cryptic messages. So I am quite dense when it comes to understanding such messages. Guess am not the typical woman wherein when she says no it is a maybe?!?
Over time I realise others are not the same. I need to decipher the actual message!
Why not make things simple? Just say what you mean. Saves a lot of time & effort for everyone involved!! This will also save quite a few relationships!!!
Wondering now who is responsible?! The one who says something or one who understands something else?!?
