Be willing to lose (2/11)

Not everything has to be a win for you in the argument. The earlier you decide what’s most important to you, stuff you’re not willing to give ground on, the better chance you have of avoiding arguments in the future. 

To borrow a classic Dr. Phil-ism, do you want to be right, or do you want to be happy? That advice has gotten me through what would have been a lot more arguments with my wife than necessary. Most of the time I’d rather be happy than win. I think she feels the same way, too.
