When was the last time you admitted you were wrong?

If you insist on being right all the time…if you make being right part of your identity…then you’ve set an impossible standard for yourself. You’ll never be able to accept (love?) the parts of yourself that are wrong.

If you never accept the parts of yourself that are wrong, then you’ll never accept that you may be wrong. You’ll never be able to truly engage with, listen to, or empathize with someone else, because they might show you that you’re wrong.

If you’re never able to truly engage with, listen to, or empathize with others, then you can do nothing but make the world a poorer place.
