U is for Understanding: Day-21

“Understanding others is not an act of compromising, it is an act of trusting and respecting the feelings of others.”

To understand a person is not an easy task. It gets more difficult when that person is the self. Do you understand yourself completely? What you want? What you need? Compare yourself as a galaxy, and others as another galaxy. Now calculate the level of understanding. See, we don’t understand our own self completely, how can we understand others. So never judge others with their current position, you don’t know where they have come from. They face different situations, different responsibilities, different challenges and a different way of thinking. To be in the same frequency, there have to be a common understanding, which don’t judge. It just brings out the best of others.

Life is not easy. We often judge and go away from others just because we feel they don’t understand us. We feel as if we are left alone. But that’s not the case. Who knows, may be they are thinking the same thing. They also want to be understood. When you really need that person in your life, you have to take that step of understanding. To tell them that you are with them, no matter what. They all need is confidence. A person on the back. Understand that it is not easy to tackle all such situations in life alone. We need family and friends to acts our pillars of strength. Be that strength to them. They will for you too. Our circle of people is better and clear when there is a common center(Origin) to all, which is a common understanding.

When someone comes to you with a problem don’t think it is a burden on you. No one comes to you without a reason. Damn! they trust you and have faith on you. It is not that easy to get. Aren’t you great! Smile. You cannot see the same face of the coin when you are on opposite sides. For being able to see the problem from same point of view, you have t be on the same side, a common understanding. Understand their problem. They may not come for a solution, they just come to share it. To have someone who understands them, who can guide them out into the light. Talk with them, bring out a solution. Make them feel special, bring out the best from them. The feeling of happiness we get when our understanding helps others in solving their problems cannot be mentioned in words.

The problem is we never understand. That’s why we never feel happy and satisfied. We often blame and judge others. I don’t know what kind of happiness is this! it just makes us less human. Yes, that’s true that we all need to be understood but for that first we have to be understanding. That’s the real step for happiness. You cannot solve a problem, if you don’t understand it in first hand.

We all want to be understood by others, but may be they think the same. You take a step to understand them. Your good intentions will be easily understood by others. It’s all about feelings of others and understanding them. It’s the ultimate language of love.

This is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 21 and it is on the letter ‘U’. ‘U’ is for Understanding. Understand others and their feelings.


Coming to the challenge, as the name itself says it is very challenging. On every day of month April, except Sundays, which makes it to 26 days, each participant should publish a post relating to the letter corresponding to the number of the day thus completing all the 26 alphabets. For example on day 1, the post should be on something related on letter A, on the second day it should be related to B and this goes on. Exciting? Isn’t it?

And as always, thanks for reading. Have a beautiful week ahead. Cultivate the habit of understanding.

    Another thoughtful post. I agree with your points…we are so busy with ourselves that we fail to pay heed to other’s words and feelings.We never try to understand others… 🙂

    Hmm! Quite an intriguing post! I totally agree to the fact that we ourselves don’t understand us, but we are always ready to form an opinion trying to understand about others!
    Nice post Jackie 🙂

      Thank you so much Srivi. I am glad that you agree to it.
      There is by no means we can understand everything about a person, so we have to come to a common understanding by which we can share problems easily.

      Thanks for reading. Have a good time. 🙂

      Thank you so much Sri di.. Your comments always light me up. And yes, if we understand that they may be thinking the same, there will be no chance of having unlinked chains in relations..

    Jackie, it’s the best word for U for today’s challenge. It’s great that you have focused on that word and explained it in a profound way. It’s a very important thing of our lives. We need to realize ourselves first, then we can understand other. But, we cannot do it, that’s why; we want to be understood by other.

      Hello Sayanti.. Thank you so much.. Yes, understanding is very important in every part of life. You have said it correctly. We never understand ourselves that’s why we always want others to understand us. I am glad that you liked it.

      Have a good evening.. 🙂
