Just acknowledge

Every one of us thinks in our mind that we are always right.

Yet all of us can not be right all the time, because, in my mind, my ego tells me that you are wrong at the same time someone else believes they are right and therefore I must be wrong.

Why have humans not realised that we can not be right all the time and others always wrong? It’s not possible.

Simple, our ego will not allow us to be wrong. Even if we reluctantly accept that we are wrong and say so out loud, deep down the mind will work its magic to convince itself that it was still right, there were factors that made us temporarily make an error but we were still right.

The fact is, to our true essence and self, right or wrong does not matter. Yet we waste so much energy and focus on being right, all the time.

Perhaps we can just choose to neither agree nor disagree and just acknowledge the other person but not pass a judgement. Imagine how quickly conflict would go away.

Being wrong


Being wrong is a brave thing to admit to.

It takes courage.

Most of us have grown up in the ‘black and white’ world of being right is a win and being wrong is for losers.

It is almost like a badge of honour to win an argument, it is how our worthiness can be measured. It’s often how people feel superior to others.

To admit that you were wrong is hugely liberating, as you release the massive pressure attached to always having to be right in order to feel worthy.

It’s simply a question of unlearning in order to be free.
