Being right

Being right

Being right is a lonely place.
Our choice is to be right or reconciled.
Relationship over ego
is one of life’s great lessons.
As our testosterone wanes
and the fog of false bravado dissipates,
we see the wisdom of humility
of taking a breath
of letting go of the rope
of the higher good
of leading with love

So, we have a choice
to sit and simmer alone
in our righteousness,
alone in a big quiet house
with only our pride to fill the void
Or surround ourselves
with warmth
and compromise
and tenderness
and compassion
and companionship
and love.
