Unqualified Unbending

My theme for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge is contronyms. A contronym is a word with two or more opposite meanings, making it its own antonym. Click here to find out more about these quirky words.
Freya with the letter UAfter having a bunch of letters in a row with lots of contronyms to choose from, I was sad to see there were only two choices for the letter U: unbending and unqualified. Even worse, I’m not excited about either one. I think they both fall into that category where you have to do some twisting and stretching to see the definitions as opposites. But unbending is the more contronym-y of the two choices, so I’m going with that one.
Unbending – not bending; rigid or inflexible
~ or ~
Unbending - to relax (the mind) or (of the mind) to become relaxed
Tiger was unbending in his views about the dangers of recreational catnip, so his buddies Socks and Smokey thought it would be hilarious to lace his food with it. Now Tiger’s unbending in the normally terrifying bathtub.
