THIRTY-THREE (57 Ways to Beat Loneliness & Depression)
Life is not a battle. Yet we spend so much time fighting. We always have to be right about everything. One time I was arguing with this guy over his consistent tardiness whenever we were to hang out, and he argued that he was not late at least one time, to which I retorted I was sure he had been late, but he was lucky that I was too late to realize how late he was… yes that was literally our conversation, we both kept trying to prove the other person was wrong until he finally suggested that we stopped arguing about who was right and focus on the more important issue at hand.
It’s amazing how passionate we get about our own perspective and our own “rightness.” But sometimes it is more important for us to let go of being right and instead let peace reign. Would you rather be right or would you rather be happy? I must confess sometimes I feel like I would rather be right than be happy, but being happy is always a superior choice.
Lose some arguments, let the other person feel heard, no matter how right you may be (or you may think you are).
Remember life is meant to be peaceful.
