- I wasn’t trying to be “right”.
- I wasn’t giving the information to cause a fight.
- I wasn’t doing it to prove a point.
- I definitely was not trying to bully them or humiliate them.
It’s important to stand up for what is right.
But when standing up becomes fighting, it may just be more important to back down, step back and ensure you are really fighting the original battle.
If someone comes at you with truth, and you fight back with “Yes, BUT”
perhaps you should take a moment to listen and re-group instead of giving in to the inertia of the fight.
Is it more important for you to be right?
Fight for what’s right.
But stop right-fighting.
Because if it’s really more important that you are RIGHT, you’ve already lost.
