Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words. –Proverbs 23:9, KJV
Have you known that person who knows everything?
Even when it is obvious there is a lacking in knowledge?
Perhaps she has been friends with a lot of famous people.
Maybe he knows all about everyone around.
It could be they have done everything and been everywhere.
And then you pull them aside and quietly point out a small error in their story or correct a “fact” they shared.
But there is always an excuse or a way to brush off what you’ve said.
You may even find you have a new enemy (or at least less of a friend).
Or maybe you are that person.
Can you take simple correction? Can you admit you may be wrong? Or do you always have an excuse or ignore those who disagree?
Do not stretch the truth or make up facts. And if someone corrects you, listen and, if needed, admit you’re wrong and change.
