“When you have the choice between being right and being kind, just choose kind.”
Maritza and Heather sat down to share some words on this topic, which presents itself almost daily. There is nothing wrong with being right, as long as your delivery isn't unkind. And if you have to choose, we both agree...kindness is much more important than being right.
M: Choosing kindness over being right is one of the best ways to create peace in your life. Rather than fighting to be right, stop and listen, then offer some kind words to make peace.
H: Often times we are faced with a situation where we may truly know without a shadow of a doubt, that we are in fact, right. I am a the type of person who speaks my mind, but most importantly, speaks my truth. I feel unsettled until I say what I need to get off my chest, and that isn't a bad thing, to me, it's healthy and natural.
This typically holds true all aspects of my life. However, I have found that sometimes, silence speaks the loudest, and it's more important to always be humble and kind (like my boy Tim McGraw sings), than right.
Do you speak your truth?
Love & Light, Maritza & xo HZ
