Anger, hurt, resentment and depression pretty much occur as a result of feeling you have not been understood.
Feeling understood is probably the most basic of human needs. It is almost as critical as the need for air.
When someone listens patiently and intently to your words and feelings—both expressed and unexpressed—it feels incredible and it makes us feel loved.
When you feel that you matter enough to be understood it is healing, and it allows you to empty your entire heart, all your fears, disappointments, and pain.
As you release this; you heal. You go from feeling invisible to feeling visible, from feeling down to feeling uplifted, from feeling hopeless to hopeful.
Our thoughts and feelings are powerful, dynamic forces that influence every aspect of our lives and are a major causative factor in either the health or dis-ease of our body. Keep this in mind as it is a core tool for life.
