You Don’t Understand Me.

How has your life been impacted by you not feeling understood? How many times have you gotten upset because you thought you weren’t understood? How many times have you had to explain yourself over and over again to someone because they didn’t seem to get your point of view? How many times have you gotten into arguments with someone simply because they didn’t understand your view?

This is my story, this is my song, and I know that I’m not alone. I can’t tell you how often I feel misunderstood. Feeling misunderstood has had a major impact on my life.

I enjoy the company of those who get me I don’t want to spend much time with those who make wrong all the time because they disagree. People who agree with me are way more fun to be with.

This was how it was for me for so long. Then one day I realized two things that changed my feeling of being understood.

First I realized that I was letting what others thought about me determine my reaction. When what I should be doing is responding to them based upon who I say I am.

When I’m responding to others based upon my commitment to life vs. reacting to what they think, I always come out better.

Secondly I realized that it’s better to first understand others, than it is to try and have them get you. There is a quote that goes “Seek to understand, before being understood”.

When I make a gracious effort to understand the wants and needs of others before mine, things tend to work out better. I experience a lot more friction when I’m trying to get my point across than when I’m trying to get their point.Now I seldom feel misunderstood and on the few occasions where I do, it really isn’t a big deal.

Be the change you want to see in the world.If you want others to understand you, you must first understand them.

Managing the human condition

There are countless things that we all experience simply because it part of what it is to be human. This is commonly referred to as “The Human Condition.”
The difference in a Great  Life and an awful life is determined by how well you mange the human condition.
Everybody hurts, Everybody cries, everybody lives, everybody dies
Everybody poops, everybody pee’s, everybody eats, everybody sleeps
Everyone worries, everyone frets, everyone remembers, everyone forgets
Everyone doubts and Everyone belives, Everyone is
Your success in life is cleary determined by how you deal with life “As It Really Is”
You can’t manage something that you don’t understand. You can’t understand how a thing works without allowing it work. You have to let it work, on order to figure out how it works. If your trying to control how it works, there is no way you can truly understand how it actually works. Therefore your wanting control over things will be the cause that limits your control over the thing.
So the key to managing the human condition is to surrender to how life really is and work from there with a positive mental attitude towards everything.  That my friend is the one of the “KEYS TO THE KINGDOM.”
There is nothing more beneficial to life than a great attitude towards life. Your attitude is your life. Whatever your attitude is, your life will mirror it. Bad attitude, Bad Life, Good Attitude, Good Life, Great Attitude, Great Life.
Who wants to be managed by a person with a bad attitude. How many of us have had a boos with a bad attitude in some way or another. This type of boss made work unpleasant whenever they were around.
Well, now imagine that you are managing yourself with a bad attitude and you don’t even know it, just like you awful boss didn’t think he or she had bad a attitude. What if that’s just the way you are managing your human condition, with a bad attitude? Then maybe that is the reason that you life looks the way it does.
Things have to be dealt with powerfully in order to feel powerful around them. There is no power in pretending, True power is generated only in believing in what is real.
You can’t be happy by pretending that you are not human and that you do not suffer from what it is to be human.
The best way to manage The Human Condition is to except your life as it really is and manage it with an attitude that makes you feel great everyday. Then and only then will you experience the riches and the blessing of life, which is the only real wealth that exist.
