Good Friday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: Understanding has two sides. I understand you, but unless you understand me we won’t be able to negotiate a plan together. Understanding requires two or more people who listen, and seek to understand what’s being said before they consider what they think or feel. It’s impossible to fully understand another if you don’t care about what they think or feel as long as you get your own way. Teamwork requires listening and understanding prior to building.
