Oftentimes it doesn't matter that you didn't intend to hurt anyone, they're going to be hurt regardless and there's no "right action" to repair it or spell of disillusionment to clarify that intent. People are going to believe what they're going to believe, there's no logic to it, and no talking them out of it.

In Buddhism the right action is to manifest good intentions and act accordingly. If your good intentions are not understood, then it is up to the confused to ask for clarification so a meeting of the minds can occur.

Their "right action" is to give you the benefit doubt and then begin a dialogue based on the desire to understand.

If they choose to be hurt rather than seek comprehension, then that is on them; not you.

Thanks for clearing that up. I preach intent and motive often. I wish more people understood the truth of them.
