Right or Happy: Your Choice

We have all been in arguments, disagreements and confrontations either with family, friends or work.  There are times when it was clearly the fault of the other as their conduct was inappropriate, causing unnecessary stress and pain.

We review the event, complain about it to others and continue to stew over the fact that we have every right to be angry. There is a need for others to know that we are correct, so we hold onto the wrong done to us.

Each time you complain to others you are creating stress in yourself.  The person you are complaining about just fine!  You are perpetuating the damage done because of the need to prove yourself right and your happiness is being compromised.

As time goes on, it comes down to this simple question:

Would you rather be right or happy? The good news is this:  It's your choice.

Let me know in the comments below if you are able to let go of being right.  If you cannot, what do you think get's in the way?
