Being an understanding person doesn't take a lot of studying — it takes opening your heart to appreciate what someone else feels or experiences.

A person of understanding is thoughtful, empathetic, and knowledgeable. Understanding comes from an open, honest attitude and emotional maturity. These two things everyone can start working on right now.

While true understanding takes a lifetime to master, the quest for it is more important than any final goal.

Ask yourself: how can I be more understanding in my daily life?

  • Assume the least about the other person, reserving your judgment as much as possible, while showing genuine empathy
  • Try to listen to understand, rather than listening to reply
  • Give your own self the most understanding
  • Consider learning to understand others as a strength, not as a weakness

Act of kindness: try to show more understanding by remaining quiet and actively listen to someone today
