Some people will be difficult in your life not because they want to be difficult but their outlook is different from yours.

These people can easily make you frustrated. This is when you need to remember Viktor E. Frankl’s message “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

If you react with anger, things are bound to get worse. If you choose your response by showing understanding, you will feel peaceful.

The angry reaction will make you feel justified. The thoughtful response will make you feel happier. You can decide whether you want to be right or be happy.

I would choose being happy over being right, hands down!
