What is Ugeddit?

Have you ever experienced a moment with someone, where you felt heard, completely understood, and connected?

If it was with your best friend, then this moment represents why you are friends

If it was with someone new, then this moment made it seem like you’ve known each other for years

This is the meaning of Ugeddit

Why does Ugeddit exist?

There’s a global pandemic happening, but it’s not COVID-19. The things that are happening in the world are shining a light on a much older and systematically disastrous problem: violent communication.

The rising popularity of the Internet and social media has revealed that the vast majority of people have been using mindsets and behaviours that create fear, anger, and sadness; judgement, blame, and depression.

  • “If you don’t agree with me, then you’re the problem”
  • “They’ll never understand”
  • “I’m a failure, and I’ll never amount to anything”

These mindsets, and similar ones, lead people to encourage, even perform, psychological and physical violence on others or themselves. The effects of this are seen across the world, from military conflicts, to socially-divisive political and ideologial tribalism, to online echo chambers of hate, and self-harm.

And the way that social media and news have been used for short-term gain of reputation and revenue has only been compounding this problem, making it continually worse over time.

Ugeddit exists to change this.

What does Ugeddit do?

In order to spark a positive change, we are focusing on helping people do 3 main things:

Make difficult conversations easier

CNC (Core Needs Communication) is a language we’ve designed to create comfort and understanding, and build connection and growth in every conversation and relationship.

Influenced by models such as SDTNVC, and others, CNC brings focus and gravity towards recognizing, connecting, and fulfilling people’s top-level values & needs. This is made possible by the structure and vocabulary itself which centers around “clean thinking” and intentions.

Build and grow happy relationships

Relationships are the most important thing, period.

Whether it’s the relationships between different particles of matter in the universe, between different people in the world, or even your relationship with yourself, how things and people interact with each other is what determines everything.

If you’re not completely happy with everything about your family, your partner, your community, or your life in general, then this means your relationships with them, or with yourself and how you talk to yourself in your own head, can be shifted and built up to what creates more happiness for you.

Train critical thinking skills

Recognizing and understanding the difference between what is measured vs what is imagined or assumed is the key to learning from mistakes, making life simpler, and creating more success.

It’s easy to assume; the mind does it automatically, and it has evolved to do so, because assumptions, overall, have a beneficial purpose. But this benefit is not universal, and assumptions in other situations can limit one’s perspective to a very narrow tunnel, preventing them from realizing when they’re believing something that isn’t helpful.

One of the most limiting assumptions people often make is this: “What I am currently able to perceive, recall, or imagine is all that exists. If I cannot perceive, recall, or imagine something, it never happened or must not exist.”

Questioning assumptions like these allows people to start seeing more of the choices they have and paths they can explore to understand anything and achieve their goals faster.
