Pride ruins relationships. I don’t know why people cling to this. Most of the time, when I argue with someone, I am the first one to swallow my pride. I know better now than before and I know that it’s just pointless to keep it there.
I mean pride in a certain amount is ok, sometimes it’s good. But too much of something is just not good at all.
It’s such a heavy feeling and literally, it can put me emotionally and physically down. It’s such a stress.
It’s best to just pause, breathe deeply, clear my thoughts for a while and think slowly… Think on what matters most and what makes sense.
If I bother putting down my pride just to save my relationship with friends, family and loved ones – that means I really care about you guys.
If I don’t bother, that just means you’re not worth my time and ignore you.
So do know that when I say I’m sorry, put down my crown of pride, go up to you and talk it out… That means I care about our relationship.
And some points to ponder on. I know pride lingers in everyone, but think about it 🙂
Temper gets you into trouble. Pride keeps you there.
A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you’re looking down, you can’t see something that’s above you. – C.S. Lewis
No one ever choked to death swallowing his pride
In general, pride is at the bottom of all great mistakes.
