Overview

“I’m sorry you feel that way.”
—Anyone who’s mastered the fauxpology

We all struggle to admit fault. We defend ourselves, talk more than listen, or find flaws in the messenger to dismiss the message. These habits build walls and leave us estranged and disconnected.

Letting Go of the Need to Be Right is an invitation to recognize issues that impede personal growth and hinder relationships.

You will learn how to:
  • pursue what is right, not who is right.
  • be mindful of your motives.
  • allow for creativity and collaboration.
  • celebrate others instead of stealing the spotlight.
We are called to be lifelong learners and servants. When we let go of the need to be right, the pressure to know it all, have it all, and be it all lose their power over us, and we are free to fulfill our calling in God.

I didn’t feel I gained much insight from this book. It was mainly life stories. I prefer more instruction in my self-help books and less storytelling. I received this galley from NetGalley.
