Dr. Dwayne Dyer is often quoted as saying,
"When given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind."
Such wise words, but so hard to follow sometimes!
When I'm hellbent on being right, or on "winning" an argument, I do get a boost of satisfaction.
But that boost also comes at a price.
What is the cost?
It's connection and closeness in my relationships.
Next time you find yourself trying to win an argument, ask yourself this:
Is is worth the cost?
Then choose kind.
