Day 5: The most important strategy of all

(5) UNDERSTAND VERSUS RELATE

I couldn’t relate to why Carrie got so emotional about people who had wronged her.

But she couldn’t relate to why I was always worried about money.

And that lack of relating caused some major rifts.

“Why do you care so much?” would be my angry response to her tears.

“Why do you always have to be so gloomy?” would be her confused counters to my stresses.

We couldn’t RELATE to each other’s dark points.

But we learned to simply UNDERSTAND them.

And that made all the difference.

Two people with two different perspectives on life.

Two people with two different pasts.

Two people who have been shaped by their own individual influences and experiences.

Two people who are likely NEVER going to truly relate to the other’s stressors or urgency.

But two people who will find complete harmony if they stop trying to relate.

And simply learn to understand.

By being compassionate.

Without the need to save.
