We have all had experiences where our actions have been misinterpreted by others.
If our intentions were honest, there is little value still in defending ourselves because this still leaves the other person feeling dissatisfied. We all want to believe that what is inside is the only real thing. I am reminded of the old saying that "perception is reality". The trouble is that both the intention and the perception are real.
We see the outside, not the inside of people. The most relevant part of ourselves remains a mystery to all who encounter us. If we are not self-aware, we may also find that our true self is mysterious. When the inside is shared, it is still sometimes not fully shared. Therefore, most of us do our best to maneuver through life keeping the balance between intentions and perceptions.

The essence of who you are does not lie in the past. What matters is what you are willing to do NOW. You are the presence.
