Are You as Happy as You Want to Be?

Are You as Happy as You Want to Be?

Do you want to be right?  Or happy?

Does that question irritate you?  It did me for a long time until I really got honest 

And said…I want to be right. 

There were conflicting energies going on inside me.  

I really wanted to be happy.

Yet the other side of me wanted to be right.

Why need to be right?

There was something about gaining more esteem for myself by influencing other people’s opinions.

My self-esteem (which is how I feel about myself) obviously needed some help.

When we are influencing other people’s opinions – that situation can be tense and awkward.

What do we really want? 

What I wanted was to feel better about myself.  I wanted to feel worthy. I wanted to feel like I had something worthwhile to say and share.

Yet my ego was taking precedence.  

I had to learn to make a decision.  Do I want to be right? Or do I want to be happy?

It’s not just a cliché.  It’s the difference of feeling utter frustration or feeling peace.

If you are experiencing this kind of situation, ask yourself:

  1. How do you want to feel with this person?
  2. What is it that you are truly looking for inside of yourself?
  3. Do you want to live in conflict or peace?

It sure has changed my relationships and how I view life.
