What do I mean by today’s title?
This is what I mean: it’s okay to ask “What do you mean?”
You might hesitate to ask “What do you mean?” for fear of seeming
- mean or impolite,
- challenging, and/or
- otherwise inappropriate.
“What do you mean?” simply means you want more information. Because human communication is so challenging, asking “What do you mean?” is effective, direct, and actually a compliment!
What do I mean by saying it’s compliment? It tells the other person you are interested in their experience, thoughts, and feelings — you want to know more about them.
And since we are all working at making meaning, the more clear meanings we can make together, the better.
