Would I rather be right or happy? I find myself asking this question a lot as of late- especially in our current political climate. My ego can get so wrapped up in being "right" or "winning" an argument - but where does that leave me? Truthfully, being "right" is just a mechanism of separation. When I'm coming from a place of "I'm right and you're wrong" things are so black and white that there is no space for understanding or empathy. How often have you walked away from an argument feeling victorious for "winning" only feeling kinda shitty moments later. I think Nietzsche put it best when he said "You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist."
Just a little food for thought xx
