When looking at people is like trying to look at a pair of slipper with hundred varieties of style and of color. All look similar in its physical feature but each has its own attitude, altitude, and behavior. Some are pretty outside but difficult to deal with. Some are looking simple and plain but incomparably beautiful in the inside. Some are weak and easily get broken while some are tough as hard as rock that last a lifetime.

To understand people is to understand the constant change of life including the cause and effect of that change that molds the human mind and its psychological well-being which are the main factor in survival.    Even if you ask each honest individual to define who they are, somehow, they have difficulty to tell their real character because people are dynamic and living in a multifaceted phase of life.  Yet, the strongest character that sums up the real person inside within them is according to their strongest principle in life.  And that principle is according to what they believe. People’s thoughts, actions, habits are manifestation of that principle which then becomes the concrete foundation of people’s character and attitude.

Understanding people is such a complex subject that makes relationship complicated, challenging and fragile. The most effective tool to understand people is never care about them! Ignore what they say if it doesn’t contribute to your emotional well-being. Appreciate those who are helping you to grow and to get matured. To those who are destroying behind you, forget it, never mind, those people not worth it to keep even in your thoughts.

You don’t need to explain yourself to people and insist what you know and forcing them understand your point of view ‘coz their understanding is only up to their own level of their own comprehension.


“Understanding is deeper than knowledge. There are many people who know you but very few understand you.” -Anonymous

“You can only understand people if you feel them in yourself.” –John Steinbeck
