We all want to be right. It’s so gratifying to be right and it tells us the superiority of our thoughts and skills. All the fights which happen had been on the point that “I was so much RIGHT”. It’s gratifying to be right but its liberating to have the freedom to be wrong. When we get into the circle of being right and to be proven right we are imprisoned inside that circle. Being wrong makes us feel frustrated and low because somewhere it tells us that we have been wrong. We do not realize the difference between being wrong as a person and having some incorrect thoughts. Even when we realize that we have been wrong, we try to hide that because we have an urgent need to be right and we assume that if our idea was wrong, we were wrong as a person. We may create stories around same, which is further binding. However, the moment we realize that we can be wrong and it is ok to be wrong, we are free. We are free from own thoughts and we are free from the fact that we need others approval.
A person is never wrong, his ideas or actions can be wrong. We all have the freedom to make mistakes and correct them. Instead of trying to be always right, be free and enjoy being who you are and be aware of who you are.
