The Daly Gem:
“I’d rather be happy than right.”
Do you often find yourself needing to be “right” in your social, personal, and work relationships? Does winning the battle feel good, or instead, does it feel a bit exhausting constantly pulling at people to agree with you?
Why do we feel this need to be right? What is our intent? Is it because giving up an argument makes us feel weak? Could it be that being “wrong” is associated in our minds with being “bad?”
If you find yourself obsessing over the need to always be right, try this out:
1. First, ask yourself the reason behind this need. Why? What is the payback?
2. Next, “try on” how it would feel to just let it go. How would your relationship with this
person improve or be different?
3. Finally, make a conscious effort in discussions and debates this week to politely explain
your opinion, allow the other person to be heard, acknowledge them, and let it be.
