Will we ever understand other people?

I feel that's only posible with good communication and honesty, therefore it'll always be hard.

If one accepts that we as people are an open system and so will change as we interact with the world - it is impossible for us to understand anyone completely. Each time we interact with a person they will change as we will too and so we interact with an infinitesimally different person the next time, as they do too.

Some Christian thought is that if we get to know ourselves fully, we will know God. Bit our minds are too small to conceptualise God and so it is impossible for us to get to know ourselves completely. (Thank goodness SW is so open to different views - this should cause no controversy:))

That is why a public commitment to one person in Marriage is such a courageous step. As people, we only know part of ourselves and part of the other person and yet we take that step and commit to it for a lifetime.

We will understand some people, but will not be able yo understamd others.
Some people will be honest and forthcoming....but many people wom’t.
Understanding people as a whole will always be difficult, because there will always be people who sill either be dowmright dishonest or will withhold something from us.

[@475592,DragonFruit] I agree. Also, could be the differences about how we perceive the world and life. The way we think etc, that makes it hard to understand or, accept each other. What we want.. And not.

I think we humans understand each other well but choose not to understand.

The ones who talk in favour of evil, definitely deserve ignorance. Unfortunately, we humans find their thought-process appealing at times.

Well…they say men will never understand women and women know men too well already!

[@488176,LunarOrbit] everytime I'm getting less and less interested in people and their stuff.

[@536386,Gaiia] Understandable. Especially online. Good communication and honesty are hard to find these days

Most things worthwhile and rewarding are hard:)

Not entirely. Which can be a good or a bad thing

Some you will and some you won't.
It's not easy, here are mainly the obstacles: Are you willing to? Are you able to?
That being said, if you give me their natal charts... Well understood.
