Oh I think you're quite right about that. It reminds me of that phrase, I dunno if you've heard of it: "It's better to be happy than to be right" or maybe it started out as a question as: "Is it better to be right than to be happy?" When it's written out like that, I find myself choosing the latter but when I get into a situation where the other person just doesn't want to compromise, I do whatever I can to be right. I hate it when that happens because so much energy is put into a conflict that only results in one person having the last word and the other feeling hurt in the process. Even if both people finally realise who's "right" and who's actually "wrong", neither one of them feel satisfied. The person who's "wrong" ends up getting hurt and the "right" person ends up feeling guilty. /sorry for rambling.
