It’s not a pleasant experience to be accused of something one never did. Honest people value their integrity and strive to do their best. They mean no harm and seek no harm.
But sometimes, actions and intent are misunderstood by others. People with partial knowledge may jump to conclusions about the facts and make accusations that are incorrect.
If victimized by such ignorance, “What to do?”
One rule I’ve applied over the years when faced with false accusation, is to respond with truth and love, rather than react with anger and resentment.
Bitter words can cause misunderstanding to grow and heat up. One becomes part of the problem, rather than a solution to the problem.
The wiser response is to stay calm; listen for the guidance of divine Mind; and respond with words that dissolve the ignorance and restore understanding. Let truth and love have the final say!
As the Bible reminds us, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” (Proverbs 15:1, RSV).
Let a “soft answer” come out of your mouth. Let Truth dissolve any ignorance and Love restore peace.
