BEING RIGHT OR BEING KIND
“Be selective in your battles, sometimes peace is better than being right!” – Ritu Ghatourey
Some people are so laid back they almost fall off their chairs, they take what life offers them with good grace. Me, well in the past at least, I’ve been like a bull in a china shop!
I knew my solution was the best one, it was fair, in everyone’s best interest and yet I was unable to get others to accept what I was saying. Maybe, at least on some occasions, I won the argument but lost a friend.
It’s an ego thing wanting your own way and having to be right. I have found that although I cannot be silenced, without sharing my point of view, now I am much more likely to accept someone else’s view and let them win.
If you have a choice to be right or be kind; be kind. Swallow your pride find peace and keep your friendship. Don’t let others win all the time, but end belligerence now!
