When Being Right Is Wrong

Ways in which your drive to be right is causing more strife than necessary.

Firstly, I want to start off by saying that I’m preaching to the choir here, sister! There’s nothing sweeter to me than being right; however, as I get older and mature, I’m seeing ways in my life in which that is causing more harm than good.

I’m seeing more disruptions caused by my drive to be right than anything. I’m often times finding myself at a crossroads, asking myself “is it really that important to be right about this?” 

Truthfully, when I really ponder it, being right often isn’t worth what I’m sacrificing. And usually, as the mother to a stubborn toddler, what I’m sacrificing is my own mental health or sanity. And, as a wife, what I’m sacrificing for the sake of being right is sometimes my marriage.
