Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?

do you want to be right or do you want to be happy

Dr. Phil often asks his guests this question.

And also usually, in the end, everyone agrees that they’d rather be happy than right.

Let’s stereotype for a change!

Sure, we all know, women and men are different. Men are from Mars and women are from the nearest shopping mall or whatever. Men are rational and women emotional, I know.

Is s/he interested?

I remember reading a few years ago about a study that claimed that people in a happy, fulfilling relationship are also healthier. Well, the article claims that married couples would be happier and healthier, but I’d assume the same goes for couples that are together for a longer time even if they’re not married. Since many people in this day and age are in a very long term committed relationship even if they never make it official.

Well, who am I to argue with science?
