What if all were right?

I grew up thinking that if what I believe is right, he who thinks differently is wrong, and that there are right things, and wrong things.
Some days ago, someone with whom I had a discussion told me: see, we are both right.
It was like a shot, a nice one however.
I realized it was true, and the more I reflect over it, the more it makes sense, and the more I understand the world.
We suppose that our way of life is right, what we believe is right, so different people must be wrong, or weird, or less evolved, or....
But probably they think the same about us.
So who's right?
Everybody or none.
It was like, the horse thinking that the birds flying, or the fish swimming is not good and even trying to "convert" them to the gallop. Silly uh?
It's something to remember when we have an argument with someone.

When a goal makes us unhappy.

It can happen that we have a dream, a desire, something that we really want to achieve, something that we think will make us happy.
But if we give it too much importance, we won't feel at ease unless we reach it, thus preventing ourself from being serene now, from enjoying what we already have.
And high chances are, that when we reach our goal, we won't be able to enjoy that moment too, because we are not accustomed to appreciate the present.
What I find useful in this case, is to keep a certain detachment.
Having a goal, doing what it takes to reach it, but knowing that everything is perfect just now.
