Being Self-Righteous.. NOT!!

Do you feel embarrassed about being right sometimes? About being a self-righteous person willing to put someone else down? Is being right and more importantly being acknowledged for being right so important? May be it is.. But is it worth it?

Two arguments with 2 close friends on something absolutely insignificant - that is my score for the week. Result - I couldn't prove that I was right, I upset them and then I felt down for making such a big fuss about almost immaterial things. And you know what is the worst of it all, I did not even apologize for what I did because I was too embarrassed about what I did.

No, I do not advocate that we should not stand up for what is right, what I am contemplating is that is it worth to prove that you are right about things which have no significance in your life whatsoever. Things which won't matter a few months down the road. I know I am guilty of doing it far too many times than I can remember.

Next time, I will try my best to not make a fuss about things that don't matter.. Spend some time probably to weigh the pros and cons of the argument before getting into one. One doesn't need to prove that she is right.. It is all about the state of mind.. And it is always great to be open to ideas and grow oneself even more as a person..

Let's not take life too seriously or make ourselves too significant. It is all about spreading happiness to whoever we reach out to.

எனக்கு நமது செந்தமிழ் நாட்டுப் பொய்யாமொழிப் புலவரின் வாக்குகள் நினைவுக்கு வந்தது.

1. வாய்மை எனப்படுவது யாதெனின் யாதென்றும்
தீமை இலாத சொல்லல்'
2. பொய்மையும் வாய்மை இடத்து புரைதீர்ந்த
நன்மை பயக்கு மெனின்
