“When we are too proud to admit our mistakes, we often lose something that is utterly more important than our useless pride.” –Jocelyn Soriano
Let not pride make you pay an utterly high cost. Let it not take you away from those you love. Let it not stop you from reaching out and admitting your mistakes. Let it not rob you of many years of friendship for a short moment of misunderstanding.
A single word can often bring back what was lost. A simple gesture of apology can often heal a hurting heart.
What is pride but being alone in our own self-made prison, beyond the reach of those we love? What is pride but an illusion of victory, where in truth we suffer the defeat of not having what we truly desire?
“Never suffer pride to reign in thy mind, or in thy words: for from it all perdition took its beginning.”-Tobit 4:14, DRA
“Humility makes men angels, and pride makes angels devils.” – St. Augustine
