Throughout life we find ourselves choosing a side. Whether it is a political side, or which group to hang with in school—we must closely examine why we made those choices. Many of us reach a point in our life through trial and error, while some pick a path and maintain the course.
When someone points out flaws in your chosen path, people often defend their reasoning with false logic. People hate being wrong. Some innate power makes people fight for their chosen path, even when it only proves their gullibility. The greatest strength we can have is to admit when we were wrong.
