Or for being right for that matter. No matter whether there is a gun at your head or you’re about to be sentenced for “Contempt of court”. NEVER bend.
If those you are simply being honest to become irritated with you or decide to launch an attack on you personally, drop them. It may not be your preference and you may still hold them dear but the alternative is to give in to their pressure.
Is this being “stubborn” or is it retaining your integrity?
To me it’s the latter. Always will be.
But remember, if you’re wrong OR you are not 100% assured of your ground, have the grace to compromise.
What happens when you’re very rarely wrong?
Ah! It becomes rather lonely but then you don’t have to listen to shit or put up with it and, as long as you are a being who can be content with their own company. it can work quite well.
It’s never a preference especially when you love rather deeply but if that love means compromising your own integrity, then the love is not sufficiently reciprocated.
