Whenever you find yourself in disagreement or in conflict, whether in a romantic relationship or work relationship, it's always a great question to ask yourself -- Is this important? Will this matter a day, a week, a month, a year from now? And would I rather be right at this moment, or would I rather feel good?

A lot of the time the reason we want to be right is all about ego. I want to be right, I want to be the one who came up with the idea. But sometimes being right comes at the expense of relationships and constant arguments.You have to think about it from this context and say, “Will this matter? This thing that I'm arguing about right now, in this moment that feels so big, so important -- Will it matter?” If it's not going to matter, it's not fundamentally important. As Elsa would say, “Let it go.”
