Defeating Our Constant Need to Be Right in a Relationship

Wanting to be right doesn’t guarantee us our happiness. In fact, it only serves to stroke our egos and divide us from each other.

Choosing to Be Right

Now, think about how you’ve been fighting for a second. Have you ever wondered how you got there in the first place? Weren’t you just annoyed a second ago because he left his dirty dishes in the sink again? All of a sudden, you’re butting heads with each other about who’s right and who’s wrong.

Choosing to Be Happy

The challenge then is for our ego to relate to others in a way that lets us transcend ourselves and focus on our commonalities. One way to do this is to change how we fight with each other.
