When Is It Wrong to be Right?
By Randy Gage in Prosperity.
If you’re reasonably smart, and a critical thinker, you can win every argument. I once went ten years without ever losing an argument. And my ex’s can all testify to that. What might have something to do with why they’re ex’s…
The real issue was my low self-esteem. Subconsciously I needed to win arguments to try and prove my worth to myself. But of course it actually had the opposite effect. Took about four years of therapy, but I got to the point I actually liked myself. Then a funny thing happened…
I didn’t always have to be right. And find it quite helpful and illuminating to learn when I am wrong. And you know what else?
Sometimes I am right. But I still don’t have to win the argument.
Do you really get what that means?
