I think people often to want to misunderstand you in order to fit the picture of what you are to them...

from my experience...

With so much going on in this world, peace of mind is almost an impossible goal to reach, if you don't make it a priority.

There is, and always will be, rude people, corruption in our government, malicious enemies, unexpected stress, and of course, the ever present fake friend, all ready to snatch away your inner peace like a thief in the night.
And they will succeed, if you don't make peace of mind a priority.

Practice getting to the point where nothing can disturb your peace of mind, your inner peace.

Once you start being aware of the things that easily rob you of your peace, you can start to better control your response to them by controlling your thoughts.
Ultimately, it is your thoughts that rob you of your inner peace, not the external actions of others. It all depends on how you look at things.

When you start to look at things in a different way, their affects on you start to change as well. For example, when someone who you thought was your friend, blows you off and turns out to be nothing more than some manipulative hack who was merely riding your coattail, trying to parley your success, look at it as a good thing.

Instead of looking at it as you losing a friend, look at it as you discovering the truth and getting rid of dead weight that was weighing you down.

Look at the matter rationally.

This person was never your friend to start with; she was only using you for her own agenda. So losing the so-called "friendship" is a great thing, not something to lose sleep over.

Most everything can be mentally re-framed to see the positive side instead of merely seeing the negative side of the event.

Every coin has two sides;
it is up to you to decide which side of the coin you focus on.
