"I don't try to be right, I choose to be happy" ... wait, what?
Hi Daniel, I know what you're saying, I agree, and I think I have something helpful to say. Right versus happy isn't an all-or-nothing choice. We should pick our battles wisely. That's the answer. We are sometimes faced with a choice (this is from John Bradshaw): do we want to be right or do we want to be close (to someone). Lets make that choice conciously. As the annoying grammarian is probably not doing. By the way, I'm not religious, but this reminds me of a quote from Jesus: "I bring not peace, but a sword." This seeming contradiction from a great champion of peace is about rocking the boat when what's right is important enough. But he did it with love and non-violence. Maybe that's the way to be right AND happy...
