“When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.”

I love that quote by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.  I try my best to live by that philosophy .  For a stubborn person like me, sometimes that is hard. But along my life’s journey, I have found that even when I KNOW I am right, arguing about it is never the best thing.  I have learned that backing down and letting the other person “win”, not only results in peace and goodwill, but in time, the other person usually finds out that they were wrong.  I also find that agreeing to disagree with respect and love promotes more respect and love.
The next time that you KNOW you are right about something and another disagrees with you, take a moment to pause and reflect.  Is it really that important to be right?  I choose kind.
