I've learned to choose which is more important over the years and have even had to apply this to my parent/step child relationship as well.

Right. Because being right makes me happy.

Best Answer

I'm happy when I'm right also but in a relationship, being right doesn't always make for the happiest results. Sometimes compromise leads to less arguments and greater happiness as a couple. I'm not saying right is bad, just that forcing the issue might make for lonely nights where a partner is concerned.

Best Answer

Well, I've learned that most things I thought I had learned in life, were all lies and misperceptions fed to me since I was young, So I really don't need to be right, But Happy is one thing I always need.

Best Answer

Well said and quite true. We are often told things when we are young that either our parents did not understand how we'd interpret or were polarized on the issue and just gave us their point of view. Experience teaches us otherwise, especially if we live a very different life from that of our elders.

:) Sometimes it stinks to be right: worse to have to share that with someone you love.

Best Answer

You're right! {and that's A OK, of course!};)

Best Answer

I want to answer that I would rather be happy. But ba<x>sed on evidence, I act that I would rather be right. Working on changing that.

Best Answer

Thank you for such an honest answer. Every time I think I've managed to resolve this in myself, I catch myself arguing a point of no consequence. Thankfully, about 80% of the time I catch myself in the act and just say "ok. sure. go for it" and leave it be. Much harder to do when I know the ramification will affect both of us or worse, our entire family.

Best Answer

Happiness is something everyone has to work at but being right is automatic for me. For me theyre not mutually exclusive.

Best Answer

True. This is in the context of a relationship where forcing your point may lead to arguments and an unhappy couple. There are cases where one doesn't even want to be right but is just trying to prevent the other from making a mistake that will have lasting ramifications for one or both of them.

Best Answer

If you are happy, then being right doesn't matter.

Best Answer

I choose happiness over being right also but sometimes it isn't such an easy line to draw because of the ramifications of allowing the wrong person to go forward with that decision. You keep the peace but pay the consequences later.

Best Answer

Happy and right.
