Things I like Thursday: Understanding

Today’s things I like Thursday is about understanding…

  • Being criticized by a certain group.  Someone completely understanding why you are upset because they know the criticism even worse.
  • Realizing complaining about above said criticism is silly, especially when the other person deals with it daily.
  • Having someone be able to ground you.  Just by listening.  Even if they can’t relate to your problem.
  • Hearing a story that happened a long time ago that had a huge impact on someone as a teen.  Silently fighting back the tears because you are thinking about how they felt in that situation.  Wondering how you would have reacted in a similar situation.
  • Someone trusting you with something they’ve never told anyone.  Something that caused them pain and disconnected them from someone.  Them knowing that you may not relate, but can understand.
  • Someone understanding how much something means to you.  Even if it doesn’t seem attainable.  Wanting to be part of something you’ve heard such wonderful things about.
  • Understanding that everything happens for a reason, even if the reason isn’t clear.
