UNDERSTANDING PEOPLE The pupose of this essay was to explore the question of why people are so hard to understand The quote came from the book A RIVER RUNS THROUGH ITby NORMAN McCLAIN It is always those we live with and love and should know who elude us After reading this quote over and over I finally have an idea of what it means The word elude as found in Websters New World Dictionary means to avoid or escape either mentally or physically This quote is talking about the mental aspect It is easy to know a person from their outer image an image that is often made up to cope with the world around them We all know our family and friends and those we interact with each day However we only know their outer image To see what is really going on in peoples minds we must understand them Theoretically spending every hour of every day with the people we love should make us aware of what they are thinking but realistically it doesnt Very few people have the ability to open up and share their feelings with others By showing their true beliefs people must take off the armor that protects them from ridicule This is not an easy task to undertake as humans fear humiliation From this quote I have learned that we should take time to understand people Even if they portray themselves as being perfectly fine with no problems chances are something they do not want to share is bothering them Most importantly we should also take time to comprehend ourselves We may need the most help and not even know it
