Why do people never understand me?
Is there something wrong in how I write? (This is not about EP by the way. Just life in general.)

That is your greatness. The plant cannot make people to understand it. You get to know yourself clearly first, then you will know how to communicate with other people, and where are the mutual limitations.

See how many parents become so amazed when their children think and act extraordinarily beyond their comprehension and imagination. And how wrong are other parents who think that they can mold their offsprings into some types of puppets as they wish! And it is not rare of cases where the children abandon families for disappointedly expecting that their parents to understand them. In fact, the feeling of mutual understanding is available only when people sincerely love and sacrify for one another.
Formerly, the philosophers classified men into, say, a thousand and one categories, based on observing their activities and their physical properties. But, the masses may think of about ten categories, such as the masters and the slaves, the poor and the rich, the wise and the fool, then the sentimental, the rational, the spiritual, and the abnormal, the weird, the extraordinary…And there is confusion in each of these categories. Nowadays, we know that each individual is unique with physical fingerprint, ADN, and something else in the mysterious gens. Spiritually speaking, the human soul reflects all the qualities of God, which no computers can illustrate.
That is why, throughout history, the rare sages keep on teaching man the principle of “know thyself and be thyself.” He who learns and practices this principle, becomes king in his particular field; he who does not learn, falls into the oblivion of the great multitude.
So, step by step, in various educational systems of our time, we are replacing the teacher-centered approaches, by pro-active child-centered approaches. The teachers should no longer consider their pupils as white pieces of papers for them to write down their learnings; but they must know that each child is a particular plant to be tendered in its own way. Each plant will contribute its particular leaves, flowers, fruits for the vast human orchard. Morever, the plant is said here as an example; and we must realize that each man has his own mysterious soul to be nurtured with the greatest love and knowledge.
Luckily, great knowledge for all these things are now shared freely and abundantly on the Internet. What we need most now, as teachers, parents, caretakers, is the new cultrure of learning.
