Day 2957: What do you mean?

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,
  • ignorant,
  • 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.

What do I mean by these photos?

The Daily Bitch isn’t afraid to ask “What do you mean?” and I hope you feel free to ask the meaning of any of today’s photos.

This is what I find when I search YouTube for “What do you mean?”

What do you mean when you say “Thank you”? I mean to say I’m appreciating all who help me ask questions and explore answers in this daily blog, including YOU.
