Question about Frisian

I've VERY RECENTLY begun studying the differences between each of the Frisian "dialects", as well as the differences between the dialects and the languages spoken in the areas surrounding them. So, I would like to ask a native speaker of any of the dialects: Do you find it easier to understand the other Frisian dialects or the languages which surround you geographically? Obviously you will have had more experience with the languages around you, but based just on your dialect, is it easier to understand other Frisian dialects or the surrounding languages (ex. Frysk (West Frisian) vs. Dutch vs. the North Frisian dialects; any North Frisian dialect vs. Danish vs. Frysk (West Frisian); Saterland Frisian vs. German vs. Frysk; etc.) I love comparative linguistics, so feel free to give me examples of texts, please take your time with your answers :) Also, you may respond using any language, my understanding of Frisian is very basic, but struggle is the easiest way to improve. Thank you so much!
