It is better to seek to UNDERSTAND than to be UNDERSTOOD. Both are good. Understanding is better. It puts you in control. Some people may never understand you and there is always a frustration that comes with that. Take back the keys to your piece of mind by seeking understanding. That way, YOU’LL have the information and YOU can make YOUR decisions based on that information. Bottom line.. you’re in the driver seat.
Proverbs 4:7 – Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding.
