Stubborn?

Just because you are stubborn does not mean that you are the one who knows what is right.  It means you may be closed minded and unwilling to learn something new about yourself.  This can lead to an argumentative personality which means others may not want to discuss their feelings or thoughts with you.  This will leave you feeling ignored or alone in your beliefs.  This stubbornness may be due to political beliefs, religious dogma, moral high ground or a belief that your way is THE way.

If you want to be accepted by those around you, rather than ignored by them, stubbornness must be replaced by a willingness to accept thoughts or beliefs which may differ from yours.  This shift in perception will open a whole new world to you:  a world of learning, a world of relationship building, a world of belief shifting.

Having stated this – anyone with a differing opinion about stubbornness please share it.

About Gary

I am retired, but not tired. I still want to be valuable to others. I know that others are valuable to me. After looking back on six decades, I have asked myself this question: “What do I believe?” My mind filled up. My heart started beating faster. My spirit soared. I post blogs to share what my mind is working on, what my heart believes would help others and, what my spirit is communicating to me. What do I believe, you ask? Decisions dictate your path In love, not hate In tolerance, not prejudice In health, not sickness In wealth, not poverty In kindness, rudeness In happiness, not sadness In encouragement, not discouragement In faith, not doubt In courage, not fear I have been and will be challenged in each one of these beliefs, but the biggest belief is to stay positive and not turn negative. This belief helps me maintain all of the others.
