Over the years I’ve heard some really useful questions - and I wonder what other Gransnetters make of them?
•Would you rather be right or happy? •If I am not for myself – who will be? If I am not for others – what am I? •What advice does my future self give me? •If I knew I was going to die tomorrow, what would I do today?
I've found these questions help me focus on what matters most - and they help, though I seem to have to learn, and re-learn, over and over again.
I often use the first expression "would you rather be right or happy?".
I've said it in some of my posts as well.
Obviously, there are times when you have to raise something with a friend or relation but I do try to avoid quarrels with people who aren't going to change. I try to let things wash over me and find that time heals quite a lot of things which annoy me.
