False accusation and misunderstanding is a familiar circumstance in our today world. It has been in the world right from centuries ago as those who desired to harm the dignity and image of the others accused them falsely. Some tried to escape punishments for what they did and therefore threw the blame on others. However, some false accusations are made unintentionally.
We want to see how to respond to false accusations. Do you fight over it? Do you just ignore and walk away?
Whenever you're accused wrongly by your opponent, whether he or she does it intentionally or unintentionally, there are few things you must do to get the matter wisely settled.
1) 𝗜𝗳 𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗻 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗳𝗮𝗹𝘀𝗲 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝘂𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻
In this kind of situation, it is just you and your accuser that know the truth. He would feign seriousness and would say words that would make his or her listeners believe you are wrong and guilty. In this kind of situation, do not keep quiet or just ignore and walk away. Silence in this case would not be helping your innocence as you would be giving the people the impression that you're pleading guilty with silence. You have to be bold and tell them you're right. Look into the eyes of your accuser and let him know you're conscious of his tricks. But if you're shy and cannot speak out, just keep telling them you're not guilty. While doing so, it keeps them doubting you are, until you have something tangible enough to prove your innocence.
2) 𝗜𝗳 𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗻 𝘂𝗻𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗳𝗮𝗹𝘀𝗲 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝘂𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻
Most things can result to this. Maybe the harm done might be similar to what you can do and the accuser should not be deemed wicked or evil. He or she is just working with the reality. It might be in a place of work or at home. Your boss might assume you did what you didn't do simply because it looks like what you do. In this kind of tempting situation the first action to take is silence. Do not interrupt them. Allow them to be through and then tell them clearly that you're not guilty. Give them the differences between what was done and what you do. Even if it is what you do, try and give him the reason why he should believe you weren't the one responsible for the present one he's mad about.
