I’ve been accused of doing something bad and it is not true. There is a lot I could say, but let’s put it out there for you guys. I’m sure there are many of you who have been accused of doing something bad and it was not true. There could be a few reasons for it, maybe someone truly believes you did this bad thing and they have been misinformed, or someone is lying about you, or someone truly believes you did something bad out of paranoia. Whatever it is, it’s a false accusation.
I’ve been thinking about this. Can you imagine being falsely accused of a crime and you were sent to jail for say, 10 years? There have been instances where a person is falsely accused and have gone to jail for life or even have been executed! That is heinous. Pure and simple. How would you handle it if you lost your freedom through no fault of your own? You serve out your time, but . . .
How do you cope with your situation? Do you get angry and let the anger build, keep it inside of you for 10 years? Do you resign yourself to it and make peace with it? Do you seek out God to help and guide you and eventually, forgive the person who put you in jail in the first place? I can’t imagine.
For me, I have learned some lessons here. I find myself empathetic to my accuser as well as compassionate. I put myself in her place and tried to relate to what she is going through. I understand. I’m a Christian. I want to be Christ-like. Besides, I love my accuser. But the more time that goes on with this accusation, the more anger I have. Today, I revealed my anger.
I could only reveal my anger because I have a wonderful husband, who BTW, is a Christian, who let me get the anger out that was inside me. I’ve just recently married. Most of my life, I kept things inside and that is not healthy for me. I want to help you people out there, reading this post. Not everyone has someone they can turn to, to vent and get all the poison out of your system.
Being a Christian has helped me tremendously in situations like this. But, I slip and make mistakes. The first thing I would say to you is no matter what, always believe in yourself. Be careful of your behaviors and words. There may be times when you may have hurt someone unintentionally or something similar to that. Admit your mistakes. Admit your wrongdoings, when it is warranted. But know yourself and learn to forgive others.
It’s good to have a loving and caring heart. But guard it with all your might. If possible, talk it out with the person you are having a problem with. That’s not always possible as in my situation right now. But know yourself and your heart. God knows your heart. Always remember that. God is the only one you really need to atone to. God loves us unconditionally, which makes it easier to forgive others when we’ve been wrongly accused and badly hurt.
Take care of you. Always be honest with yourself. Always be honest with others. You can’t go wrong. God bless!
