Relax the Need to be Right

“It is impossible for you to be angry and laugh at the same time. Anger and laughter are mutually exclusive and you have the power to choose either.” ~Wayne Dyer, author and speaker As I’ve said before, joy is a choice. Laugher is a choice too. Why would you choose anger? Is it because you want to be recognized as being right? Holding onto anger causes loads of stress. Have you watched as someone who is so angry and frustrated clenches his fists? The knuckles turn white. Letting go of those tightly clenched fists would be so relaxing. I’m going to strive to let go of being right all the time. I’m going to relax my heart and realize that if I believe that I am right, that’s enough. It is truly narcissistic of me to think that the world will share my every opinion or that I have the obligation to the world to prove my point of view.
