Sometimes we don’t realize how important communication can be. Not just being able to talk to someone. Understanding them. Listening and processing what they feel. There’s more to a conversation than just words in air. There’s effort. Someone wants to listen, the other wants to speak. You never know how important it is till understanding is the one thing you look for. I’d rather be understood than heard. Truth be told, I’d take that over anything.only few truly want to understand you. 

You know this is something that we are told since youth. They say “talk to me”. “Open up”. How many mean it?  How many really want to know what’s going on in that mind? Who truly want to know what’s weighing heavy on your soul? Someone who loves you. That’s who. 

Just because it’s hard for someone to understand you DOESN’T MEAN THEY DON’T CARE. It takes time to learn how somebody is. It’s hard to learn their patterns and it takes time. It will be a pain in the ass but TRUST THE PROCESS. you can’t give up just because you don’t understand it yet. SEE IT THROUGH! 

You don’t have to take my word for it tho. Think of times when you should have listened a bit harder. Think of times when you get misunderstood. What could have changed that? I bet some time and understanding would. It’s never easy to open up and feel vulnerable but it can set you free. 

We are creatures of habit and if we continues to let these uncomfortable moments make us quit, have we ever truly tried to understand those who seek understanding? You decide. Stay blessed and stay motivated 💪🏽
