Misreading or misunderstanding what I write or say
And that is where the silence comes in. I get really quiet when it is clear I am not going to be understood. This is the part where I would typically let it go. It seems pointless trying to continue.
What is even more frustrating is having a friend that says the SAME thing and her having it received the way I intended mine to be.
In school the first online class I took was in tone. I have to literally use smiley faces or other forms of visuals to secure my tone or meaning. It helps but there are simply times people do not want to receive what you are saying or are incapable of doing so. People get absorbed in what they want to see and in a range that is all about themselves. Empaths do not generally see anything in this way, so it is as if you are speaking a different language altogether. In essence you are.
Might it be that you are posting in the wrong environment? Is this a cue that you need to shift focus elsewhere? Are you speaking to the right people? These are a few of the questions I ask myself when I am in a place of frustration.
Not saying I am right, but something to think about.
