Being outspoken, one must be prepared to face the consequences of your words. Thinking on this, as I have been doing more often these days, I feel I'm getting closer to a truer understanding of what it truly means.

One thought that feels important to me, is to remember that the speaker of words can't control the meaning taken by the listener. This is particularly important right now, because I am feeling misunderstood. I put something out there in social media, and some of the responses hurt my feelings.
I felt I was being given a label I didn't deserve - that of being money hungry, when in fact I felt I was being quite generous.

I hope all of that is over, and any ill thoughts are either over on the part of other people, or maybe imagined by me. Whatever the truth, carrying on like it's all ok seems to be working well for me, let's face it, my own understanding is all I can directly manage. If others wish to take a viewpoint I hadn't intended, I can't do more than I've already done.

I was at an event today where some of the relevant people were present and no harsh words were spoken at all, not by anyone else and certainly not by me. Iíll be catching up with some of the relevant people again tomorrow, but I expect all will go well again, as it did today. Connecting with other people can bring along a minefield of possible explosions, but Iím hoping it will be calm and bomb-free!

The upshot of these meandering words is that one should take care with their words, but realise you may be misunderstood. As long as you mean no harm, that should be enough.
