Sometimes no matter what some people will never get you. It may be a concerted effort on their part to just take everything you say and twist it. It may be that they don’t like all your cute shoes. It may be that they felt they deserved your job. It may be that they don’t like Geminis. It really doesn’t matter why they don’t want to get you, it just matters that your words are pretzels in their world. And, what matters even more is that you shouldn’t get caught up in such a web of willful misunderstanding.
If some don’t get you because of true differences in experiences and so forth, that is something different. Especially, despite having a different life framework, they try to understand.
But let’s go back to those who engage in willful misunderstanding. You are never going to win an argument with such people. You are never going to make a valid point in their eyes. You just need to walk away. And walk away quickly with your head held up high. Your energy is best saved for situations where their is a sense of mutual trust and commitment to understsnding one another.
Now. This does not mean you don’t try to change someone’s mind or perspective. We need to be able and willing to engage in such discussions. It’s healthy. Or can be. But a completely, closed-off individual determined to twist your words can’t be taken seriously. And, as Kenny Rogers noted “you got to know when to fold them, know when to roll them”.
