Being Correct

Correct people are irritating. You can't do anything about them. You will mostly hate them, but there is this string of conscious mind that will keep pulling you towards them. You will seldom love them but you will always respect them and if you have to believe someone blindly, it will be them.

Because, being correct isn't easy. We lose correctness in the bid to being diplomatic. We give relationships and networking more importance than we give the honesty and correctness of our work. Oops.. we don't want to rub some people the wrong way. But we don't mind going the wrong way. Being correct, is courage to be indifferent, rude and tough so that you are deceiving nobody, not even yourself. Being correct means doing your own thing, doing what makes you happy, doing what you think is right for you, even while the world is busy adoring itself in the mirror and busy charming others.

Symptoms of being correct are evident. Most often than not, those who are correct are victims of jealousy, isolation, accused of being snobbish, misunderstood or skeptically judged. If you face all of this at once, and you remotely think you're correct, yes, may be you are. Correctness and coolness do not go hand in hand. True, what is correct is subjective, but then you know what I am talking about.

How important it is to be correct? Now that is a discussion. Because many would say 'who cares?'. After all its my favourite quote, life is indeed a matter of choice. If you choose to be correct, then you shall face the consequences. While most of these consequences don't look too inviting, correctness is the road less traveled, and roads less traveled often lead you to the most marvelous places. So go on :) Enjoy your journey while the world broods over you.
