Have you been wrongly accused?

There are times when we are wrongly accused of something we did not do, and this is a hard situation that can either destroy you or make you to be a stronger person. Why is it easy for other people to accuse others? I was wrongly accused of something I never thought of doing. Because my father was once a certified playboy, people have accused me of being a playgirl. How about you? Been in a situation like this?

I've been wrongly accused of spreading a rumor which I didn't even know about. It was difficult for me because people talked behind my back. They smirked when I passed by and I was treated like a trash. But I continued on with my life, proving to them that they were wrong. I never stooped down to their level but continued to have my head held high.

That's great! I've been in that situation also and it's so painful. They falsely accuse me of spreading something without even asking if it was true. In the end they are the ones who need me :) Thanks for the nice response..

I once being wrongly accused. Some accused of cheating the examination which I didn't do and in the end I prove them wrong. In your case I believe that whatever parents mistakenly done should not reflect to the character of their children.

Well, I was accused of attacking someone online. I mean, being nasty to them during a discussion. Which was a shock to me because first, I was in a good mood. I try to not attack people period, but if it ever did, it would be when I'm grouchy and taking it out on other people. But, I didn't have any bad feelings to take out on anyone then. Second, up to that point, I was agreeing with the person. We were on the same side of the discussion. So, even less of a reason why I'd feel the need to attack them. I simply asked a question and got a completely baffling response that they weren't going to answer me because of my tone. I know people have been falsely accused of worse, but it annoyed me (still does, I suppose, since it immediately came to mind when I saw this). I wasn't aware that I had a tone, because again, I wasn't in a completely pleasant mood until they told me I attacked them. And, they would not change. They wouldn't allow for explanations or trying to figure out where the communications got crossed. They had it stuck in their head that not only did I attack them, but that I knew I was doing it and I wanted to attack them.

This thing happens, and sometimes it is amusing how written or typed words can be misunderstood like it seems you are angry when you are not. Good Luck!

Gossip is really destructive and that is common anywhere. It's hard to avoid but we can. Thanks :)

A few times, I think. There are times where someone makes a comment, whether it be myself or one of my friends, that gets taken in the wrong direction. That just proves that you have to watch what you say where you can be overheard. Because it can and will be taken the wrong way and lead to an insane amount of frustration to say the very least. I have been accused of doing something that I was not absolutely doing and in fact, was nowhere near the place. Nothing too serious but rumors can in fact get out of control. I try to downplay it, because if I argue with them, I notice that they just keep accusing you. If I don't respond, I don't care and others stop caring as well. Granted, sometimes depending on what I am being wrongly accused of, I do in fact care, but that is neither here nor there.

Yes, you are right. It is really hard to be in the position of the one being accused of wrong things. Thanks

It is the mind that determines how you react and respond to a situation whether it goes in your favor or not.A stronger person is he or she who rides over the tides of destructive criticisms and false allegations.A strong accusation fails to pierce a strong and balanced mind.In a world of haves and have-nots,monks and monsters,odds and evens,and all other opposites co-existing,one should naturally expect many unexpected forces,both positive and negative in all walks of life. It is wise to accept all in an unattached and dispassionate manner, and march ahead towards one's own goal post. Thanks.

I like what you said. It is well-said by a person who is wise and have learned a lot from life.

there are really people who thinks that whatever your parents had become is what you will also become. they dont realize that each individual has their own self and whatever trait that they can acquire from their parents is their choice. a person himself/herself is responsible for their own actions so we shouldnt see where did they came from

This is normal behavior in our societies that we accuse some one because of their parents or relatives and we dont see that what our thoughts and wordings ll effect the accused person personality. Yes, once in my school life I was wrongly accused by my teacher but that was not a big deal, one of my friend did some thing wrong and my teacher thought that it was me, so he asked me to go out of class but that thing was cleared to him after the class Happy Lotting
