Morning Ladies and Gentlemen,
How is your week going so far? I know you have not heard from me in a while but I am back with another discussion on pride and self respect. In all honesty I have come to humble myself and say I am still conflicting between knowing when to lower my pride all in the name of self respect.
The real issue here is that I feel like I have a sharp mouth but a big heart . So when I have love for people even though I find it hard to vocalise it , I love hard...ya dig? In a lot of situations I tend to just cut people off very sharply to protect my pride but I am slowly starting to learn that it is a beautiful thing to let things go. If love is patient then I must learn to be. Growth has taught me to be tolerant of others and even if my attempts to repair have not led to my desired outcome, I will sleep at night with a clean heart. Learn to perceive "self respect" as improving your entire wellbeing, including your conscience.If apologising or drawing closer to something or someone that makes you happy, do so. Struggling to sleep at night and compromising your happiness, in order to maintain your 'pride' or 'self respect' is killing yourself.
*Challenge: If someone is on your mind and you are scared to reach out to them. Providing it is safe and reasonable just do it.
Until next time,
