I recently experienced an altercation with someone and I would like to share it with you. I am very passionate about the things I am passionate about. I am sure you all know what they are because you all know me so well. This altercation involved something I feel very strongly about. The other person thought she was right just as much as I thought I was right. Does it matter who was right anyway? Being right is good for our ego but that is about it. When I was involved in this situation I could feel my heart starting to beat and my face turning red. I acknowledged this within myself and repeated some very powerful words, “infinite love and gratitude.” A friend and Peaceful Daily contributor, Dr. Darren Weissman, swears by these words. I immediately noticed my need to be right was fading and I was winning this argument because I was choosing kindness over my ego’s need to be right!
Next time you are finding the need to be right, just repeat those words and take some deep breaths.
Watch how you begin to relax.
Peace, Love & Happiness,
