Allow Them to be Right

“Would you rather be right or happy?” – Anonymous

Why can’t I be right and happy? If I understand and know something to be true, isn’t that okay? Yes! Doing the next right thing makes me happy. Guessing how to fix something or solve a problem to discover I’m right is awesome. Where I get into trouble is when being right makes someone else wrong. When I’m right, they’re wrong and they feel like a loser – and making them feel like that is mean. I must stop trying to help, educate or defend myself by being right. I’m much happier when I just allow them to be right. If they’re not, they’ll figure it out without my help. By resigning from the debating society, ILML!
