It’s not that Important” were the words being shouted from the backseat of the car the other day when my husband and I were “discussing” where to place the cell phone in order to hear the navigational directions. I will admit that I got “caught up” in the discussion because I was trying to make my opinion known. Of course my husband had his own idea on where he wanted to put the phone since he was driving.
My three year old granddaughter interjected herself into the conversation by saying “its not that important”. The thing that caught my attention, besides this little person yelling from the backseat and the fact that she couldn’t quite say the word “important” was when I stopped to think about what was happening at that moment, she was right. I had let my ego step in.
I laugh now because it took the words of a three year old to remind me that sometimes the little things we make the biggest fuss over are the little things that can begin to tear a relationship apart. The best thing we can do is stop, take a deep breath and ask yourself, just how important is it for me to be right?
