I have noticed that there is an epidemic in the world today of people that do not feel understood. Person A does not share an opinion with person B, and they believe that person B has not thought it through or does not possess the facts necessary to understand.
Person B does not feel understood by person A. They believe that person A has not thought it through or does not possess the facts necessary to understand.
And around we go. How long before someone decides to stop the cycle? Each of us could do it today. Lean in, listen, understand and learn something. Help the people in your life feel understood.
The next time that you do not feel understood. Ask yourself, do I understand the other person? Chances are that you are on the merry-go-round. Lean in, listen, understand and learn something.
Above… you can substitute the word “group” for “person” and it works just as well.
Just my opinion. What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
