Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy? | A Coffee With Carla | Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy

Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?

When you are driven by wanting to be right 24/7 you have zero self confidence.

Anyone who is constantly having to prove they are right, lacks self confidence.

You know these people.

They are always telling you.

Whatever it is they are talking about, they do it in the tone of telling.

And they don’t want to hear your opinion.

And they don’t listen.

Ever.

It’s their way or the highway.

They can’t be reasoned with.

Ideas can’t be shared.

They don’t forgive.

They are not understanding.

They have no empathy.

But hey who needs those things when they get to always be right.

People who force their “knowledge” onto others have no self confidence.

They think if they are right, that makes them smarter than everyone else in the room.

Well when you think & act that way guess what?

You are in the wrong room.

Newsflash, we are all wrong, many, many, many times in the course of our life time.

We are wrong.

When you can admit that, you are on the right path.

When you can’t, you walk around filled with resentment and anger.

So, if you need to be right all the time, well it’s time to start looking at why.

Why do you feel that way?

What happened to you that you have this burning desire to choose being right over being happy?

What happened to you that caused you to have no self confidence?

What happened?

Being right doesn’t win you anything in the big picture.

It really doesn’t.

Proving your point doesn’t make you a winner.

It doesn’t mean anything.

So for all of the time wasted on making sure you were right, you could have let that 💩 go.

Cause it really doesn’t matter.

And if you have a strong sense of self confidence, you won’t have that burning desire to be right.

Being right wins you no favors.

It doesn’t bring you happiness.

There is always more to learn.

There is always room to grow.

There is always room to let it go.

You don’t need to be right, you need to be happy.

And only you can make that happen.

So the next time you want to be right, try doing this.

Close your mouth.

Take a deep breath in.

Slowly exhale.

And let it go.

It isn’t worth the bad energy it creates around you.
