YOUR NEED TO BE RIGHT IS THE FORMULA FOR PERPETUAL CONFLICT
one of the plausible self-deceptions of life. It seems sensible
to set the record straight and correct people who arenít doing
things the way you feel is right. Unfortunately, your need to
be right is the formula for perpetual conflict.
When you are
committed to always being right and to always doing the right
thing, you infer the rest of the world is wrong if they donít
agree with you. Unfortunately, the probability you are always
right, and the rest of the world is always wrong, is zero. You
definitely are right some of the time. If you work hard at it,
you may be right most of the time. However, you will never be
right one hundred percent of the time. Itís impossible, and
isnít worth the effort. When the need to be right consumes you,
you live a life of perpetual conflict.
doesnít need a critic or a judge, but it does need your love.
When your heart is full of love, negative and judgmental
thinking fades. When you take the initiative and send love to
everyone, conflict fades as well.
The path of
conflict is usually a mistake, and the path of compromise
usually leads to positive action that benefits everyone. After
living for many years in the Middle East, I am convinced
conflict always makes situations worse. It polarizes the mind
and demonizes your brothers and sisters who have different
ethnic and religious backgrounds.
The roots of
conflict are deeply buried in the traditions of justice. An eye
for an eye and a tooth for a tooth guarantees that conflicts
will eternally continue tit for tat. Middle Eastern history
graphically illustrates the futility of using conflict as a
method for resolving the injustices of life.
