If You Always Want to Be Right, You May Not Have the Pleasure of Just Being

choice

Next time you’re worried about doing the “right” thing, realize there are countless definitions of the word.

Right may mean safe, supportive, consistent, tiresome, expected, unwarranted, quiet, boisterous, vigorous, brave, subservient, vocal, judgmental, caring, the list goes on.

Remember the Salem witch trials? Judges thought they were doing right by the community. Hurt a whole lot of people out of fear.

Instead of trying to find the “right” answer, find the kind answer. The one that saves you a headache, reinforces love and adds a dose of respect for yourself and those with which you’re dealing.
