Needing to be right
Recently, I was on the receiving end of someone needing to be right. I listened and didn’t take anything personally…I decided to understand that this where they were at and needed to prove something to me.
When it was my turn to speak, I told my opinion in a way that wasn’t threatening and the conversation calmed down. They ended up changing the subject and we had a nice time together.
The next time this happens to you …try this. You don’t have to take on anyone’s emotions or feelings. Just understand where they are at. You know inside how you feel.
