Be in the wrong today.
Yes, that’s exactly what I mean. Let others be right, even if you think that you are, because our opinions are subjective and often times we don’t see the bigger picture. Plus we know our side of the story but we end up making our conclusions without really hearing the other person.
Even when you are certain that we are correct and you may win the fight, you realize that you don’t feel that much better proving your point and make sure that others are in the wrong after all. You actually feel much worse, and trust me no one is going to praise you for showing them how wrong they are. No one is going to say:”Johnny thank you so much for showing me how stupidly wrong I was, please don’t hesitate to point fingers at me every time I make a mistake, I will love you forever” (sorry guys, I let my sarcasm out)
Obviously there are always exceptions to the rule and when you’re trying to save someone from making a huge mistake, be my guest. Be that true friend that shows them the way but don’t do it for your own benefit just to prove a point.
So let the other person be right. Let them win the fight because at the end of the day you will be the real winner:
- You’ll collect the reward by keeping a good relationship with the other person
- You will make them feel better
- No one cares about keeping a score anyway. You know what you know and that’s all there is to it.
All I’m saying is that some stuff is not worth fighting for and being right is more of a ego boost than anything else. Don’t sweat the small stuff you guys, it takes a lot more energy to fight with someone then to love or just ignore them completely if you don’t see another way. Plus you will be the one suffering. Save that energy for something good. Life is to short to focus on conflicts, leave it happily and focus on the bright side, let the other person win the fight and keep your peaceful aura, Namaste.
