There are times in our lives when our pride does not serve us. There are times in our lives that pride gets in our way. I have found it important to be sure that I know the difference between standing up for myself, and standing in my own way.
I recently needed to speak to someone whom I said I would not, but the reality was this was someone whose help I needed. It occurred to me that I was being prideful about something that I had long gotten over, and really wasn’t that big of a deal in the first place. So, I picked up the phone and made that call. It was like nothing had ever happened, and no time had passed.
I understand principle and I always believe that you should stand up for what you believe in, but what I realizedis that sometimes we allowpride to unnecessarily gets in the way of our relationships. There will always be disagreements amongst family and friends. It is important to address any issuesthat arise in the moment so that you don’t allow them to get in the way of you living and loving.
Are you letting pride get in your way???
Love and blessings in divine order,
