Life is too short to be right
Ultimately, we all end up in the same place, right or not.
It doesn’t mean that we don’t fight evil, hatred, and injustice whenever we see and hear it.
Holding onto to “righteousness” is like having a large ball of bile in your stomach, which you add to, again and again.
Often, that bile is fed by booze – making that ball of ‘rightness” swell up and infect our hearts.
It’s better to let go “being right”.
It’s better for our sobriety.
It’s better to be good, than right.
