A troublesome attachment

Someone sent in the following quotation:

Let go of your attachment to being right, and suddenly your mind is more open. You're able to benefit from the unique viewpoints of others, without being crippled by your own judgment.

-- Ralph Marston

In 12-Step groups the question is often asked, "Would you rather be right or happy?" Sadly, many people answer, "Right." Real interior growth has occurred when that same person can answer with enthusiasm and conviction, "Happy." It's good to remind ourselves of that question when the need to be right all the time sneaks up on us again!
