I know what do these all words mean separately, but I don't understand the meaning when they're used together. Can you explain it in simple terms and give examples of using this phrase?

The "gap" refers to the difference between the intention, and the actual result of the behavior.
For instance, a child tries to be helpful by handing something to an adult, and ends up breaking it instead. There's a gap between intent (helpful) and behavior (break), which is unhelpful.
