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.

Making change positive

Other people are always right. They right about how they feel, the opinions they have, their choices and so on. It is what they choose to do.

If you want to communicate with them, you’ll need to get that concept.

We all like our own opinions, views and choices.

No one responds well to be told they are wrong, especially in an aggressive way.

Yet so many people who set out with zeal to change the world do so in a confrontational manner.

If change-makers accepted that it’s not their place to change others and focused on positively inspiring by example, then people may choose to follow their example.

If they don’t that’s their choice and they aren’t wrong, they are just having a different view.
