Be kind

Is it more important to you to be right
or to be kind?

Winning the argument, 
having the last word,
proving your point.
What exactly have you won, ended or proven?

Much mental clutter is rehashing arguments,
replaying victims scenarios, and
practicing ‘shoulda saids’.

Try letting it go.
Try stepping back, biting your tongue,
and surrendering your need to win.

Decide when and where it really is important to
make your opinion known, share a relevant fact,
or end a discussion.

But really, most of the time
being kind is the best kind of winning.
Accept agreeing to disagree and let your 
relationship be more important than your opinion.

Walk away and let your kind actions be what people remember.
