We often feel the need to be right…Okay I often feel the need to be right. After talking with a lot of people though I know it’s a common thread. While I have a long way to go, over the course of the last year so much has happened that has made me question whether I’ve ever been right about anything.
Seriously, just about every common core fact that one can have I’ve probably questioned. It’s like you go your whole life thinking you know the exact way to go, and you stick close to that path and guard it with tons of passion, but then something happens, and then something else, and you find yourself on a different path.
Then you’re stuck scratching your head asking if maybe this wasn’t the right path all along. So yes, I will admit it. I’ve been wrong about a lot of things. My whole outlook on life has been screwed in certain areas.
It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut thinking that I am right, when in reality those thoughts and viewpoints that I used to look down upon, they may indeed have just as much validity as my own.
I don’t know everything, in fact I know very little, which makes me want to learn.
