Happily Ever After Is Just The Beginning!

Being “Right” Keeps You From Having a Happy Marriage

I’m sure you’ve heard the question, “Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?” Most people would say they want to be happy, but their actions say they want both.

The problem is that isn’t possible. Yet people still keep trying.

The result—personal unhappiness and distressed relationships. A better alternative, and one that increases your chance to be happy, is to let go of the objective “right” and embrace the subjectiveness of your own thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Psychotherapist, author, and host of the Possibility Podcast Mel Schwartz reveals just how to do that in today’s episode.

If you would like to stop being “right” and start being happy in your marriage, Lesli can help. If you think someone you know could benefit from the show, please share it on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
