We all have a tremendous desire to be understood. Which is interesting because I wonder if we even truly understand ourselves! Creating understanding between people is such a challenge because of the limitations of language. Then you add body language and inflection, and it is all left up to interpretation.
The problem is that we can’t fully communicate what we think and feel and that goes out and is interpreted by someone who thinks and feels differently than we do. We really need to give ourselves and others grace in trying to understand each other but that’s so hard to do because of our deep desire to be understood. It’s a conundrum that we explore on this episode.
