Misunderstandings when communicating through writing

Every now and then I come across things that just appear in other ways than I meant them, so I want to write about one of those things.

I just give you the text. It was on a video about Minecraft:

“And haha 🙂 I built trees like that too, I thought it was bad. I mean mine looked worse.”

There is obviously no way that you could possibly misunderstand it you might think because my attitude is clearly friendly. But it is not about that but actually about that it would be very offsetting if it was misunderstood beCause of this friendly attitude. And in this case I was just saying (earlier in this comment) what I didn’t like about a detail that he put. He put some stairs as a detail in the way and to me it just looked like holes and that you could stumble, clearly nothing rough, I just said it, that I felt that he not even like it himself or maybe it’s just me.

So with that in mind all of a sudden it appears as if I could have meant that I thought the tree he built was bad and that mine looked worse though. Which is not a problem if I really thought so, you know what I mean but there is no way that I would critisize it such way.

So ok, I put brackets, but I put it after “I thought it was bad”

( I mean the one I built of course :), ehh I mean I then saw it was alright…just rechecked how it could be misunderstood)

Looks quite messy but it makes sense that I wanted to make sure…

There is another detail I realized I need to put and that is “by that” because otherwise it could mean something else.

( I mean the one I built of course :), ehh by that I mean I then saw it was alright…just rechecked how it could be misunderstood)

But then I figured it is not in the right order because it also looks like what am I up to and potentially as if I added “mine looks worse” after the brackets. But it was before,

So I put it after it:

“And haha 🙂 I built trees like that too, I thought it was bad. I mean mine looked worse.” …but now it wouldn’t relate back to the 2nd sentence.

So I had to add another detail:

“And haha 🙂 I built trees like that too, I thought it was bad. I mean mine looked worse.” ( I thought it was bad = I mean the one I built of course :), ehh by that I mean I then saw it was alright…just rechecked how it could be misunderstood)

I also “had” to put a smile because it reads frustrated otherwise. The smile just stands for not frustrated. I mean, I felt a light frustration or annoyance. This is another detail:

I mean, I felt a light frustration or annoyance.

vs

I mean I felt a light frustration or annoyance. (no comma)

One is explaining something I said before as in “I mean, that…”, the other is not. I wasn’t explaining anything I meant prior. I mean it has a dumbing down notion because everything is usually clear out of the context which is like a nonzoomed clear view or feel ( I just meant to say, that the other is zoomed in, not explain something everyone knows). I just didn’t put a comma for example. It’s whatever in most cases, but sometimes I get the feel that things look different than I meant it and yeah 🙂

Then expressed that it’s no big deal with “just rechecked how it could be misunderstood” because it isn’t. There is no complications, it just resolves. And the smile actually stands for “not frustrated” as a primary thing but it expresses also something else of a direct meaning of it.

The only problem is that it took the place of how I actually felt, while I feel atst you can dismiss all the other and only see what is is.

Now I might have found a different way to say it, but you know 🙂

So yeah I came across a few of these things and it’s good to realize, atst also good to stay calm about it if it was an email, that you can’t edit. You can always clear it up later or when you keep your page, it naturally contrasts usually with a misunderstanding. That would be a reason to not worry, ideally you’re just completely innocent and just don’t know anything else. When in doubt, just never worry, the vibe of it will ruin things and otherwise God can help so to speak. But of course you need to know that for sure, not withhold worries. I guess that is what is faith also. You just know you’re good or you are relieved to not do something that certainly will 1. not make it good 2. make it worse. We need to see that. I mean that’s actually not the real reason why to stay calm (and who knows sometimes it might need doing something about it, yet calmly), I mean it is a very good one, just might feel a little helpless. There often is simply no need to worry. Just like you might strike up talking about work in a romance situation (which isn’t necc. a bad thing), well then you just let it fade out and start with something new as it often already presents itself. There is no need to try to maneuver it hecticly.

In case it is confusing. By his way of building I realized the tree I was trying to build was actually not as bad as I thought. And I could have put it this way, but you see I like to write maybe a more personal way Idk how to say. It usually is something, when you know each other, you know how it is meant, which is the big freedom of being friends. You can say all the stuff that otherwise often gets misunderstood.

Song in vain

You said you want

to cross the line

but then you thought

this isn’t right

But now you feel like searching on

it’s just a hint within your gut

This could turn out to be wise

For now it feels more like a lie

 

I know it’s you

But I know you don’t re—alize — it’s me

The truth in disguise of my fake destiny

Words just fall between our song and build

a wall that needs to stay no longer than it takes

it takes for this lesson

 

Can’t you feel my soul

I feel we’re drifting away

Can’t you see it’s pure

behind the blur in the way

The more i try to show

The more our love’s resisting to stay

My hands are tied cause you’re half the world away

my hands are tied cause you’re half the world away

even though this is meant rather figuratively

 

Human Body

We all apparantly get born into something. Then after the world biased us we think we have solutions. Nobody remembers what we would have done if we wouldn’t gotten biased.

Yet it seems we can’t cause we need it to get through the world. It seems like we’re stuck but we don’t know it. Or we do not allow to look at it, bring it to our conscious cause we also depend on it.

Like cancer cells attack the body, these cells need healing, yet it spreads by the damage. Healing though is not perceived to be needed. This theme is in the golden child dynamic. Yet it needs energy to fill the void. It’s like an aritifical kept alive situation but feeling very alive and real at the same time as if nothing was wrong. Kinda the worst situation to be in if help is needed. If no energy is taken, the soul seems to attack the body and the same could be happening on the collective level. At the same time this is rather black and white thinking actually.

Then the energy giver get devalued as weak. But it could just be the human body trying to survive. Surely after you gave energy it affects your health and if you get too much it affects your ego.

Lower consciousness also seems natural for certain roles we take. Surely some of us provide food for example or whatever needs to be done so from this view there is no stupidty. But then it should never be like this. We all have our genius that we rarely get to but that we were meant to get to. Maybe such collective interaction is real and the only hope is to get aware of it to overcome our differences. But it doesn’t change the fact how absurd this world is. As serious as we may act fundamentally it’s really absurd.

Differences that are needed to cope, as if we do our best. Yet those differences also make it worse if such awareness is not there, Otherwise they could heal.

Yet we do think too much on the individual level and we maybe can rarely see what we may actually be doing. Maybe we are more in the same team than we think we are. It’s the perceptions we took that came with our position, a position that had to be taken cause that’s where we left off earlier.

It would be like not realizing we were in the same team is needed to hold everything together as we found it when we came here.

Just a thought.

edit: I think it’s not all like that. It’s not so much a healing thing actually although this theme is also there. One thought I had was that god at least in our sense, not universe wise, is the collective unconscious simply and not like all knowing but atst also all knowing but more like a plant that is growing. I mean it’s part of us and like another dimension simply, somebody says something and it has a deeper meaning and synchronicity things. Maybe something that is really just based upon waking up. Cause once it would be, the other layer wouldn’t be needed but it’s not so easy. So in that sense the world not seem so absurd. There is also a lot of bizarre love you could call it. Another metapher is water flowing around a stone parting as in polarities. But you know I have no idea 🙂 It won’t make you understand anyway I feel. It has something of passive life because we all have our thing to do anyway and unfortunately often can’t give ourselves the appreciation because of the different beliefs that are needed to kinda like a temporary shizophrenia of the collective unconscious cause I feel it simply doesn’t know yet. I mean wouldn’t it be absurd if there was an all knowing god who lets us go through so much struggle if he knew better. So we simply have like splitt parts of the human body and I feel the internet is needed also because of the added synchronicity. I mean there is something sleeping in our souls that’s for sure and it already expresses in so many ways as for example in inventing the internet. Often we also do something for reasons we think we would do but on the other dimension it has a complete different intention but we wouldn’t do it otherwise often. Also the thing with the mind is really a thing. Just because you sit somewhere and look at something, mindwise, you might be miles away from seeing it. And you can’t try cause it’s such a vague thing to do. Like being confident, you might know how to act confident but yeah atst sometimes it’s enough to believe when you dont remember for sure, but actually rather it’s gotto be something you can’t fake, although the faking isn’tnecc. so far away from how it actually is I mean like both, far and close.
