Change and Being Right

Change and Being Right ~ Lifeofjoy.meI was reminded, once again, today of something I’m pretty sure I’ve shared here before. Many times when you pray for your husband (or any other person you have some kind of relationship with) God will answer you with something YOU should do! I know it doesn’t seem fair but the fact is that you cannot change anyone else. You can only change you and your reactions to what others do or say.

If you have a disagreement with someone, are you more concerned with being right/proving that you are right or keeping a healthy relationship with the person? Yes, there are some things that need to have the correct answer but really in many relationships, when there is a disagreement it really doesn’t matter who is right.

This graphic is aggravating for those who have to prove they are right.

The important thing is to stay in right relationship with the person. Are you mature enough to drop the subject and not have to be the person who had the right answer?

What does being right do but pump your pride or ego? What does it do to the other person? Make them feel inferior? Is that really how you want your husband (or any friend) to feel?

I challenge you to stop and think, the next time you find yourself in a disagreement with someone, about what is important. It just might be that you don’t need to be right and can make your spouse or friend (or whomever it is) feel that they are more important to you.

{Can you tell that I’ve had a problem with needing to be right, in the past? ;) }

Until next time, God bless,
