Everybody Wants to be Understood

Being understood is a fundamental wish of everybody in this world.  Regardless of what we did, what happened, or who we are with, we want people to understand us.  Always remember this from two sides.  The next time you’re upset about a situation, really think to yourself is this a case of me being misunderstood?  This will likely help you distinguish your next action.

Similarly, always be aware of this from the other side.  If someone is upset at you, instead of trying to fix things immediately, make your first priority to understand them completely.  This goes for anyone new who you meet as well, if you want them to become a part of your life then seek to understand them where they are.  This will be much more effective than seeking to impress them with things or knowledge.

Everybody wants to be understood.  Successful people always remember this.
