☆ understanding 理解
If you show understanding to someone, it means that you show that you realize how they feel, or why they did something. And that you are not hostile toward them. For example, you might say to someone, “Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
In fact, this could be something I might say to you as my reader if you have sent me an email recently! I have been a bit busy the past few weeks, so I just haven’t had a chance to reply to the emails you’ve sent me.
In fact, at the end of July, my mother died suddenly. And so there has been a lot of things to do and sort out, and so I haven’t had a chance to reply. So, if you have sent me an email and I haven’t replied, I thank you for your patience and understanding. I’ll be replying as soon as I can!
