    I had a rough day yesterday due to a person questioning my integrity…Being an honest person and a person who puts integrity first I was mad and upset of such an accusation…but I got through it with the support of my loved ones and let that person know how wrong they were… Needless to say I will not be interacting much with that said person anymore…Seeing this quote this morning made me smile πŸ™‚ Question to my friends here…how do you handle wrongful accusation that is hurtful, baseless and does not at all represent you?

  2. Neha, I feel for you. I agree it is quite shocking when someone acts like this especially when you are walking the Higher Road. How do I handle this? Several ways, depending on who the person is. First way, I stand up for myself and state the Truth thereby negating the lie. I go on to say, it is the choice of that person whether he/she continues to believe what was just said, or to listen to what I say is Truth. Another way I handle it … I immediately ask that person why he/she has said that and upon what circumstance that person is speaking of. If there is any misunderstanding, I want to clear it up right away. There is a third way I handle this … I say nothing, pray for that person in LOVE as I leave the presence of that person. Hope this helps. (((HUGS))) Amy

  3. This irks me to no end and I completely understand how you feel… One of my biggest peeves with my friendships and relationships is when people present themselves one way, then speak/act in another way. Dishonest, disloyalty, and questionable actions that tie into those values are deal breakers for me. If someone questions my loyalty, my honesty, my integrity, it in turns makes me question why I’m in that relationship to begin with.

    I agree completely with LadyPinkRose and typically follow those same steps. I stand up for myself, I confront the person immediately, and try to work through the situation. However, comments and actions that lead up to this kind of confrontation aren’t easily forgotten. Forgive, sure. But I’m (finally) at a stage in my life where I refuse to let myself be surrounded by negativity, and usually end up slowly backing away. It sucks, but sometimes cutting the strings with those individuals is the healthiest thing to do.

    • I actually had a fall out with a “friend” and fellow writer recently. I kept over analyzing what IIIIII had done wrong to cause the relationship to go in such a rapid, opposite direction. This individual preaches authenticity and integrity, and yet acts (and writes) in a completely different manner. After some serious cool-off time, I confronted her, said my piece, and have begun distancing myself. Why waste precious energy on people like that?

      For what it is worth, your writing (and thus, you) is some of the most honest and true work I have read here. XOXO

      • aww thank you so much Christina for sharing that with me and your support…means a lot to me…this person was not a close friend by any means but when one questions integrity I cannot just not stand up for myself…which I did and there were no sentiments of remorse or apology expressed by that person even after the fact…I will certainly be cutting of the strings from my end…and it will be a learning experience for me…I do not think I will be forgetting this anytime soon haha but I will not let that person dictate what I do or how I feel…the anger is still fresh but I know I will let go of those feelings…Thank you again my friend it is much appreciated ❀

  4. Great post and comments! I love the picture. From personal experience I can understand how you feel. Some years ago my wife and I were working for the same institution. A newer employee leveled accusations against my wife, myself and others that resulted in the loss of our employment. We were stunned by the questioning of our integrity and the reactions to lies instead of facts. It took time but we healed, those who questioned our integrity were found to be wrong, and we moved on to far better things. In fact we have done better being out of the environment we were in. Sometimes one door closing does lead to much better things. That is the hope I keep in my heart.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your kind words with me. I am sorry that it happened to you but glad that something better came off it…I too hope and keep the same sentiments in mind in this situation… I have already stood up for myself and will be cutting off ties with the said person. Thank you again and have a wonderful day! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  5. Ohhhhhhh, so sorry to hear that Neha. I hope you’re feeling better. My hubby had something rough like this happen to him once. It’s not a very nice experience, is it?
    Anyhow, I’m sure you’ve learned a very valuable lesson.

  6. well if they matter to me, I will let them know they are way off base.
    If they don’t matter to me, I’ll ignore them.
    If they really matter to me, but play hit and run cutting me to the soul, I’ll write them angry poems till I get it out of my system – that may take years… esp. if they never say they are sorry.
    You have to follow your gut – what’s right for one may not be for
    another. When I really need hope, I watch this video or similar.
    Hope you feel better! πŸ™‚

      • you’re quite welcome! That can be very good therapy if you are a sensitive. I’m glad it made you smile. Remember some anger is an emotion that manifests when someone is directly effecting your well-being. It our way of protecting
        ourselves from those who are thoughtless, selfish, or incapable of any emotion at all.

  7. Neha, a beautiful picture and quote, although I’m terribly sorry for this unfortunate experience. I suppose many of us go through similar things. How horrible they are with no rhyme or reason to them! It seems you have found strength in rising above, however painful. On that simple deed you will be rewarded in the end. I have no doubt. Blessings, my friend. πŸ™
