No, really friends. Answer this question.
⠀ I have a hard time letting myself be wrong about things. Especially with my kids or extra strong-willed people. But mostly with myself.⠀ ⠀ We like to argue for our stories that cause us pain. We hold onto them like a kid holds onto his favorite blanket.⠀ ⠀ That’s because our brains really, really like to be right. ⠀ ⠀
Here are some of the stories that my brain likes to be right about:⠀ ⠀ ..........................⠀ ⠀ My kids with special needs restrict my life.⠀ ⠀ I’ll never be able to get my body back into shape again because of my bad knees.⠀ ⠀ Being a bishop’s wife with 7 kids at home is hard. ⠀ ⠀ I’m not good with technology.⠀ ⠀ I don’t measure up to other moms, coaches, or wives.⠀ ⠀ ..........................⠀ ⠀ But what if I was willing to be wrong about all of this? What could I discover?⠀ ⠀ Having to be right...about our stories...or about anything...never serves us. In fact, it only keeps us stuck and it feels terrible.⠀
Do I want to be right...or do I want to be happy? ⠀ ⠀ I’m the one who gets to decide!
