“Don’t tell me I’m wrong to prove yourself you’re right”
Sometimes, we are caught in a situation wherein, according to our standards, we know that we are totally right and the other person is otherwise. Perhaps, in our own perspective of things we are right and this feeling of being right gives us satisfaction and worthiness and develops in us a trust to ourselves and in our words but this feeling of being right could a dangerous state and belief. It could bring disaster if left unchecked.
Yes, we are right but we also need to recognize that being right doesn’t mean the other person is wrong. Sometimes, we interpret things in the light of our own knowledge, taught or gained, and experience. And there it is, because we tend to seek out our rightness proving that we are right and trying to bring out the truth, the bias of not looking beyond the perception of others may occur and this tends us to stick in to our own interpretation of what is right. An individual self-interpretation could be erroneous.
If an individual interpretation have the tendency to be a bias procedure, then what might be there also in a collective interpretation and teaching? A consensus knowledge might sound good and it sounds like it carries the truth at its best because it is a collective thoughts and ideas put together. Truth in the light of well thought knowledge could be accepted at its best but still it doesn’t guarantee its veracity. It doesn’t mean that many approved a certain concept perceived as truth would mean it is the truth already. The world is full of truths as man declared it but the thing is why are truth often times are contradicting to each others. who tells the truths and who tell a lie?
Sometimes, if not most of the times, we feel that our words contain the truths, and we perceived that we are right. Sometimes, yes sometimes, Rightness will just be depending on how we see and interpret the events in our lives but we must also remember that there are absolute rights and wrongs in this world. It’s just because we are right and it’s just because you were able to prove your rightness, others are already wrong. Out of respect we should not tend to forget the value of a person. let’s present the truth in a way that we still respect the value of others.
Out of respect, Don’t tell me I’m wrong to prove yourself you’re right
