理解与被理解

很多人SCA5的刺痛中醒悟过来后,忽然发现政治就在身边,于是开始关注“政治”,讨论选举,参政候选人,各种大小群如雨后春笋冒芽生长。

我想华人不是没有政治热情,只是隐藏的很深,SCA5是高压锅的出气孔,这次炸开锅出现了百花齐放井喷,微信群的讨论常常到深夜还此起彼伏,人员进出比走马灯还频繁。

一样米养百样人,大家讨论过程中观点相异是很常见的事情。有人支持驴党员是因自己的亲身接触,有人逢驴必反,有人无条件支持象党因为自己找到共鸣。其实驴党象党内部也不是铁板一块,有人的地方就有脾气,就有性格;有时候别人讲话难听未必是针对你的坏话,因为那个人可能就是那样习惯了。沟通理解很重要的一点就是能够听完对方讲话,能够站在对方的鞋里看话题角度。你在微信群里再怒还能怎样?对着屏幕猛吐口水?砸了手机?有理不在高声,有礼方得尊重。

先试图去理解,再寻求被理解。
