What do you wish your loved ones understood about you better? by Raluca | Mar 6, 2019 | Honesty | 1 comment Join today’s conversation by answering the question. The comment thread closes at midnight. We’d love to hear from You! 1 Comment Intention on October 26, 2018 at 5:38 am I used to feel quite misunderstood, by my family in particular. After a lot of introspection I realized that I was using that to justify not being open with my family. Once I stopped assuming they don’t understand me, I became more open with them and found out that they understood me after all. So now instead of feeling misunderstood I try my best to stay open and to tell family how I feel and what my needs are – instead of expecting them to read my mind and heart. When I was feeling misunderstood I was placing the weight of our relationship on my family, but now that I stay open so that I don’t feel misunderstood, i share the weight of the relationship. And that is a good thing, it’s empowering Log in to Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
