We talk to each other and communicate our likes, wants and sometimes our desires. We unknowingly sometimes reveal our vulnerabilities as well. But that's just because we all long to express ourselves in some form. We find someone to confide in an share things with, in other words we have to deliver ourselves from what's going on inside. Now the receiver of this confidence is task with understanding and knowing how to interpret the deliverance bestowed upon them from another. This is a great responsibility. Now you are a confidant, by choice or default. Understand that trust and resiliencey is required on your part. Understanding is a power weapon for survival in interaction between two people. Seek understanding, which simply means:the capacity to apprehend general relations of particulars. b : the power to make experience intelligible by applying concepts and categories. Not so simple right? Try to understand, you have no choice, life will require it of you, but don't let your feelings, stubbornness or predisposition of who you are fail another. Enlarge your territory of mind, thought and maturity, and seek to find a good understanding as it relates to others. There is a lot of grace to handed out by you in the particulars revealed to you by others who trust you.
"How much better is it to get wisdom than gold, and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver. Proverbs 16:16.
Short sweet to the point.
