Here’s something interesting to get your head around and it speaks to the idea of attachment.
The degree to which you attach your identity to something is the degree to which you’ll suffer when your identity is out of alignment with what you’ve attached it to.
For example, the degree to which you are proud, delighted, or smug when you’re “right” is the degree to which you will suffer when you’re wrong.
Think about that for a moment.
If you’re attached to the need to be right all the time, you’ll suffer when you’re wrong.
If you let go of the need to be right, then it won’t matter if you’re wrong. You can go on with your day without getting bent out of shape!
And I’ll leave you with this to think about: what are some things you have your identity tied to that if you were to let them go, you would be better off for it?0
