Word of the week: "Don't get me wrong"

This week's expression is

Don't get me wrong

which you can use when you think someone might not understand what you say or be upset about it.

Example: Don't get me wrong, I'd love to come but I'm too busy next week

You can also use this expression before giving an opinion about someone or something if you don't want people to think that you're criticising that person or thing too severely

Example: Don't get me wrong, I like Carol, I just think she has some irritating habits.

What would be the Spanish equivalent?
