How to clear misunderstandings

Author: Dr. Ali Khwaja

Perma-link for article:

Often someone comes and starts complaining about how a third person has hurt him or let him down. I ask only one question, "Did you put the fact before him and sought his clarification?" Quite often, the answer is No. I personally practice that as much as I can. The moment I dislike someone's words or actions, or if I hear from another source about something the person has done, I seek out the earliest opportunity to be frank and tell, "This is what I heard from X. I felt concerned/hurt/disturbed (whatever). I want to hear from you what the truth is."

You'll be amazed how often it clears up matters which would otherwise have become major misunderstandings, fights or break-ups. Hope you follow this too.
