“During the next week, take 15 minutes to let go of your pride in an area you feel it’s holding you back.
My brother and I had a talk about pride last night, and it made me think about how often it can get in the way of us moving forward in a relationship or some other area of our lives. So this week, take a moment to examine your life and see if pride is the reason you won’t admit you were wrong to someone, or maybe won’t ask for help on something . . . the list goes on. You know you. Sort it out. -Nate.”
-First, some days I have a problem being completely real on my blog. Some of you may or may not have noticed this but sometimes my posts draw emotionally farther away. It’s true. Because sometimes it’s harder to be completely real in front of the entire world. But really, let’s be honest – this is.my.blog. This shouldn’t be a place I draw away from being real. Because the truth is – it’s.MINE. take it for what it is or click unfollow. Because I’m human, I have weaknesses, flaws, bad days and the poor, Pitiful me kinds of days, too. And that’s completely ok.
-How about the days where I’m having a bad day, every thing is wrong and I snap and my husband, poor Ryan, and my pride is just a little too big to say, “I’m just having a bad day.” Or the days that I have too much pride to say, “I’m feeling a bit emotionally weak today” when he says something or looks at me in just the right kind of wrong way, and I bust into tears and try to shut him and everyone else out.
– When I try to take on the world, pushing myself to my breaking point and I’m to proud to say, ” I need help” but instead I snap back and say, “I got it!!” because even thought I don’t “got” it sometimes it’s harder to ask for help than surrender.
-Or how about the arguments whether it’s with Ryan or someone else- and I’m too proud to say, You know what – “I think you are the one right. I’m sorry.”
