Pride Aside

It’s a funny thing how we do or don’t do something because of our pride? Like not calling someone we care about because we want them to call first, and as both people put their pride in front of their hearts time passes, and it gets harder for anyone to say what needs to be said. 

I use to live with my pride held high, then one day I realized that pride has it’s place.  You should have pride in your work, in your home, your family or children, but not when dealing with the heart.  We all come from different backgrounds, and have different issues from our past that we might be dealing with, and sometimes we don’t necessarily speak the same language as someone tat we care about.  Our differences sometimes makes it difficult to say what needs to be said, and sometimes difficult to hear what is being said. 

So, I have learned to listen to my heart, and realize that sometimes you have to lose the battle to win the war. It’s not always necessary to be right. It can be difficult and unpleasant to have to say the things that need to be said like “I’m sorry” or “I was wrong,” but I would rather experience and uncomfortable moment than a lifetime of regret.  I don’t want to look up one day to find that I miss someone that really meant something to me because I thought I had a point to prove.  When coming from a place of love so much more is always gained than pride can ever award you.   

What are you holding pride for?
