Fact Versus Interpretation

Facts or Truths, as we know them to be, become less and less when we take responsibility for our interpretations about what we experience.  It can also save us massive amounts of pain and grief when we check our version of the facts against what we interpret them to be and particularly when we allow the interpretations of others to simply be their interpretation and not necessarily the Truth.
The need to be right, without regards to being correct, is one of the most damaging practices in relationships.  If we need to be right, someone else must then be wrong.
