“It’s okay to make a mistake, it’s okay to be wrong, if that’s what we choose to call it. We’ve grown up in a culture that has programmed us to be right for SO long that changing this mind-set may be a frightening and painful adjustment. The reason we may have a difficult adjustment is due to our mind thinking it always has to be right and justified.
Allow yourself to make a mistake. Give yourself permission to be wrong. That’s how we all learn! If we as human beings, could just let go of the unconscious belief that we had to be right and replace that word right with the word correct, maybe the transition would be a little easier to live with. Perhaps the ego wouldn’t be so traumatized at having to give up being right and justified.
“Does it really matter?” would be a good question to ask yourself when you feel the need to be right above all else.”
Karol K. Truman, in “Feelings Buried Alive Never Die”
