Day 35: Hod

If we identify as a good communicator, a keen listener, an engaged person in relationships, the idea that our words could be misunderstood might be surprising. We may have the belief that others also have the ability to intuit needs which can lead to us not expressing our own or not asking questions. None of this is inherently done with malice. The Fives ask everyone to make adjustments, this one around our beliefs and how we communicate with others. There’s a sense of humility that comes when we recognize areas we need to adjust or reinterpret when we didn’t necessarily think to address them before. This is part of our work: to consistently check in with ourselves and others and alter our approach—if necessary—to ever shifting circumstances. Where are you being asked to re-evaluate how you communicate with yourself and others?
