Misunderstanding

If there are any remaining or recurring wrongs on our earth that need to be righted, all that we have to do is to cope with misunderstandings, which persist taking place ceaselessly between various civilizations, countries and cultures, and certainly, between people, especially those who the twists of fortune has given a chance of decision-making. Misunderstanding might be a source of confusions, blunders and oversights that can even unleash wars between nations and destroy the extant order in the world; it

can ruin families and devastate individuals; misunderstanding may lead to such a level of disorientation that one may never find his or her way back into the normalcy of former existence. Misunderstanding, with its unhelpful power of creating false impressions and fallacies, can murder love without a vestige of hope of its resuscitation.
The ever-present misunderstandings are prone to generate mistaken beliefs, doubts and ambiguities, conducive to chronic human insecurity, which in its turn leads to violent quarrels and clashes. Misunderstanding is a vice accompanying us throughout our lives. It showers us with bafflements, doubts and panic; it makes us wrangle and bicker with our friends and relatives, sometimes letting a regular fall-out cost us our lives. But the gist of the matter is that misunderstandings are not coming over on us out of the blue.
They are often a result misapprehensions and concoctions that we usually fall victims to. Let’s try to understand that every slip-up or inaccuracy in our behavior occurs as a result of misinterpretation of certain events and acts, usually taking place in life. There is no guarantee at all that our conjectures, inferences and presumptions are always faultless, and the driven conclusions are fair and correct.  
The figments of our imagination have a capacity to bring about the illusion of our judgment’s precision whereas we might be egregiously wrong, which could end up in catastrophic misreading of the context we are faced with. This is why the misunderstandings, shaping up as a consequence of mystification and puzzlement should not be given a chance of overpowering our better judgments. For this, we have to be extremely alert so that mirage and hallucination could be curbed right away in order for us to exclude the possibility of misconception. Subjecting ourselves to perplexity and bewilderment, no matter how serious the reason might be for our suspicions of somebody else’s misconduct, our propinquity to a mix-up will provide for misconstruction of the situation. Therefore, let us not jump to sudden conclusions or make hasty inferences. Let’s first think and then jump!  Avoiding a misunderstanding, which seems to be possible in most cases, means to be secure from being vulnerable and free from uncertainty. We are always headed for making a gaffe because we are humans, and nobody is infallible, but failure to notice our mistake when we are in touch with our fellow humans, may very well give a birth to misunderstanding which must be aborted on the spot without any delay, without even letting the other side become aware of it. Who will be a winner, you want to ask? Both sides will win – being troubleshooters in turn according to who gets the warning sign first.
