It’s okay for people to be wrong

Respect a person’s right to be wrong. I used to correct people all the time over things, I would see, that they do wrong. What I found out was that they didn’t like me more for it.

How do you feel when someone tells you you’re wrong? Don’t you feel like you want to defend your position sometimes? This creates arguments.

What I do now, if it’s not something that will kill the person, I just let that person express the idea without my input unless I'm asked to. Based on this, I can refer them to a book or information that may help them be right without actually me giving my input.

Some people don’t mind being told they’re wrong but they still need to be approached the right way. “You’re so stupid, can’t believe you didn’t figure this out” may not be the right approach.

If you know you’re right, let time prove to them that you are.
