Diary #154 Scoring Points

“See, you’re wrong and I’m right.”

Scoring points is quite satisfying. Especially when the other person is trying to get one over me.


You might say, "Be mature, make your point and let it go." But how else will I get acknowledged and respected?


Maybe the trick is to be discerning: recognise when it is helpful that I score points and when it is helpful that I don't.


How do I do that? By being less caught up in my emotions. How do I do that?  Through practices such as mindfulness.
