Do you still try to be right? We are taught from an early age in school that being right is good and rewarded and being wrong is bad and punished. This programming has been hard wired in anyone who spent their formative years in a school. While it is still important to be right when choosing the right kind of material to build a bridge, it isn't as important in our inter-personal relationships. What is far more important than being right there is showing our love and acceptance.
