Understanding is often the first thing we want. Humans are social beings. Even those of you who are more introverted in nature want to be accepted and understood in the circle of your loved ones. Being understood is important in various areas of life; at work, in the circle of friends, and in the circle of family, and above all, it is important to be self-aware. It sounds strange, but a great deal of misunderstanding is hidden in each individual.
A person who feels misunderstood may experience this as anger, pain, and loneliness. It is important that this article be read by those who feel that everyone understands them. But at the same time, they do not understand others, so they get some tips on how to make people easier to understand.
Every person harbors desires, ideas, longings, and also opinions that are at odds with their surroundings.If we can share all this with the world, we can express ourselves, which is one of the basic guidelines for happiness. But the question is, Is it necessary to be understood to be happy? Or is it enough to be able to express ourselves? Of course, we can go without it if we look at history and see that many of the people we value today were misunderstood, but being understood helps a lot with personal happiness.
Understanding is the key to good relationships.
Active listening is the first step to understanding yourself and others and being understood. When it comes to a conversation, understanding is much easier if we listen. So if you’re on the sidelines when you’re feeling misunderstood, first make sure you have the listener’s full attention.
If you are often in a situation where you feel that your surroundings are deaf and blind, answer the following questions:
- Where does the need for people to understand you come from?
- How do you contribute to understanding and misunderstanding yourself?
- Do the people (for whom you want it) have a desire to understand you?
- Can you accept that your view is just like that and you don’t have to interpret it?
- What are the areas where you feel understood?
And again, back to the beginning, within ourselves. How should people understand us when we do not fully understand ourselves? Being understood is part of personal growth and the power to deal with your own fears. When you cannot call for the assistance of a coach, Coaching helps you look at yourself and raise your own understanding so you can grow, express yourself and achieve your goals in life.
