I'm not asking to be understood. I just want to be loved and accepted for who I am. Understanding usually takes too long in friendships and relationships anyway. So I don't expect a lot from these things. Even if I don't understand someone, I will accept them for who they are. I don't expect the same. I just want to get the idea out there that most people would prefer love and acceptance, which often leads to understanding, rather to have it right away. Besides, who said that understanding someone or something very quickly was such a good thing?
