A to Z- Authentic Inspiration: Understanding #atozchallenge

When someone looks me in the eyes and peers deep into my soul and seems to understand exactly what I am thinking and feeling it truly inspires me.  I get this overwhelming sense that they can see straight into my heart.  I am so thankful for those that take the time to truly understand me as a human being. Those that value me as a person and want to walk with me through all of the ups and downs.  

This weekend I got a glimpse of that understanding.  Someone looked me in the eyes and saw me for exactly who I was.  A broken, human being.  They understood my hurt and pain, and they met me where I was.  

This inspires me.  It inspired me because I was able to see exactly how love should be.  It inspired me because I was able to see that there are people that actually care about others.  To me it brought this connection to another human being that I have never known before, and it was magical.  

I am so thankful.  I am so inspired.  It makes me want to be a better person.  It makes me want to share love with those that I meet by providing for them.  It has allowed me to see humanity in a greater way.  

Are you ever inspired by someone's understanding?

I am in training for to be a certified addictions counselor and someone in class recently said that being truly understood is both our greatest wish and our greatest fear, which I thought was an interesting point. To be seen fully by someone who accepts us is truly glorious. To be seen fully by someone who doesn't is painful. I am glad your experience was a positive one.Those moments are truly inspiring and mean so much. They are often all too rare in our busy worlds these days, I think. It is great that it makes you aspire to do the same for others. :)

I am generally misunderstood. I'm glad you found someone who does understand you.
