Seek to Understand

One of my favorite pieces of relationship advice comes from Steven Covey’s The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. He states: Seek to understand the other person first, before trying to be understood. 

And he’s right. We all want someone to understand us and see us for who we truly are. Most of us are trying so hard to get others to understand us and see us for who we truly are that we often forget that the other people have the same exact need.

Someone has to be the first to extend empathy. Let it be you.
