Stubborness

15 October 2007

Anyone who knows me will put tell you that one of my biggest character flaws is stubbornness.  Sometimes consciously and sometimes unconsciously, I will unreasonably charge on with my way of doing things, letting those who disagree take the highway.

My question is this: is stubbornness simply a matter of perspective?  Is stubbornness relative?  How does one give up stubbornness?

It seems wrong to simply  give in to someone else when you think you are right, and yet that seems to me to be the only way become “unstubborn.”  I often run the risk of swinging the pendulum to far the other way and simply becoming ultra-passive and allowing others to decide things simply so that I either don’t seem or become less stubborn.

I’m not sure that works, though.  Thoughts?
