Honestly - It's OK To Be Wrong

Me? Wrong ? No.. its not possible …😱

Quite unlike the gleeful little rush of being right, we can equally experience a dent in the armour when wrong.

If we relish being right and regard it as our natural state, I imagine that you can also remember how we feel about being wrong.

For one thing, we tend to view it as an inexplicable aberration in the normal order of our knowingness. AS if our intellect, absolves us from ever being wrong.

And if through some small faltering lapse of memory, our errors become shameful evidence of our gravest social, intellectual, and moral failings.😎

Of all the things we are wrong about, the idea of fault might well be the greatest of them all

In other words we are wrong about what it means to be wrong.

Far from being wrong it is impossible to seperate from some of our most humane qualities: empathy, optimism, imagination, conviction, and courage.

And far from being a mark of indifference or intolerance, wrongness is a vital part of how we learn and change.

Acceptance can revise our understanding of ourselves and amend our ideas about the world.

Benjamin Franklin stated that wrongness is a window into normal human nature and into our imaginative minds, our boundless faculties, our extravagant souls. 

Its ok to be wrong .. remember to be graceful in defeat
