A sober A.A. friend, Bob. F., who was married to an Al-Anon, Ellen F., --- shared with me one of the most important lessons that Iâ€™ve ever learned in life!
Itâ€™s more important to be happy â€“ than it is to be right!
I remember arguing with Bob, trying to get it through his thick skull that he had it all wrong! Bob, had been sober much longer than I had been sober â€“ and, evidently that A.A.-stupid bug had bit him! Back then, I was pretty smart! That was before the stupid-bug bit me!
I would say â€“ â€œBob, there is no way that I could ever achieve lasting happiness in life, and there is no way that I could ever be happy â€“ if I was right about something â€“ and I had to act like I wasnâ€™t right!â€
