In the workplace, you witness this often: the need to constantly be right. I can understand this need, but it goes too far sometimes. Interestingly, this habit also spills into their personal life. These same people are not content in their personal lives and their relationships are short lived.
Happiness Means Letting Go Sometimes
Being happy means letting go at times. You don’t need to respond or react to every event or incident in your life. There will be times when you don’t agree, whether it’s at the workplace or at home, but you’ll have to let go of certain things to maintain your happiness and peace of mind.
Pick Your Battles
There is a fine line to walk in this. It’s important to pick your battles. For the priorities that truly matter to you, stand up for yourself and set your boundaries.
For other things that are not so important to you, let them go. Learn to pick your battles and voice your opinion and stance only when necessary.
There is Freedom in Not Always Being Right
You’ll feel liberated in not always being right. You will feel more secure. You can be happy even without having to be right all the time.
