You are responsible for what you say. You are not responsible for what others hear.

Sometimes people take things the wrong way.
They hear what is said through the filter of their fears and insecurities.

Rather than actually listening to you, they are listening to their own belief systems.

We need to take care and responsibility and be respectful with our communication, and yet it is also important to know when it is not your fault.

When we know it’s not ours to fix or defend, we can often be more present and clear with our response.
