And Then Some News

Thursday’s essay, “Everyone hates a know-it-all, so give up your need to be right,” is the first of two essays on the need to be right. Next week's focuses on the same topic. This week's essay focuses on what’s wrong with the need to be right, the benefits of giving up the need to be right, and specific methods for accomplishing it. If you are a person who always needs to be right, if you know someone who has a need to always be right, or if it happens to be your relationship partner, this essay is for you.

Thursday's And Then Some Essay preview

Everyone hates a know-it-all, so give up your need to be right
by Richard L. Weaver II


To become a person who does not possess this need to be right requires a great deal of self-awareness. Self-awareness? Yes, because you must observe and catch yourself in the act of being adamant and inflexible. If you are willing to own this behavior—“It’s me; I am being inflexible”—and then forgive yourself for doing it—“I’m sorry; I won’t let it happen again”—this has the potential to raise you to a higher level of consciousness. By breaking into your rigidity, you will increase your personal power. Instead of having power over others, you will develop power over yourself. That is the essence of self-esteem.
