    Don't mistake my eagerness to go with eagerness to leave.

    Don't mistake my eagerness to stay with a desire to stay.

We mistake one thing for another all the time:

I will mistake your eagerness to go because I've been left before.

I'll mistake your eagerness to stay because I so much want you to stay.

Asking the first question is easy. "What's up?"

Asking the second question requires listening to what hasn't been said.

Thanks for your comment WanderingE, and for your own "few things" that you want someone to know.
