Being right, defending our positions, takes an enormous amount of mental energy and often alienates us from the people in our lives. Needing to be right - or needing someone else to be wrong - encourages others to become defensive, and puts pressure on us to keep defending.
Richard Carlson. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff (1997), #12
