Hurtful Accusations

Have you ever been accused of something you did not do? How did that make you feel? How did you react? How did you convince the other person that the accusations were not true? And most importantly, what damage was done to the relationship?

Recently, I was accused of something I did not do. The accusation was pretty serious and given with a lot emotion. I was caught off guard and stunned and they would not listen to anything I tried to say.
I had some time afterward and went through a range of emotion. First, disbelief, then anger, then sadness. Sadness, because I feel that the accusation has severly damaged our relationship. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what happened, where the accusation came from and how I can show this person that their accusations are unfound.

I keep mulling over the thought that everything I do to prove my innocence will fail. Like the man accused of murder. The facts point to him and he is convicted because the fact that proves without a doubt that he is innocent is not or cannot be presented in court.

I'm at a loss as to my next step and hurt about the entire thing. It's not something I can just ignore and hope it will go away; I have to address it. I just hope reason and calmness prevails. As to the relationship, I am not sure how it will come out on the other side.

Blogging Vacation

I've been on a blogging vacation. Life has been a bit crazy lately and I had to focus on my family. As much as this blog is therapy for me, I had to set it aside for a few weeks until things settled down.

Even though things here are still a bit chaotic, it's calmed down to the point that I can once again get all these thoughts out of my head and out there for the world to read.

So, I've begun to write blog entries again, but probably at a much slower pace.

BTW: The picture doesn't really tie to this post, but I just cracked up when I saw it and had to share javascript:void(0)it.
