Pride: A Dangerous  and Costly Sin

Characteristics and behaviors are learned; whether from your upbringing or the environment we place ourselves in. We often struggle with why we are stuck in a rut or make decisions that defy or counteract what we know to be “true” based on our life experiences.

Pride is a very subtle yet very destructive quality to own. Living a guarded life can hinder relationships and trust from those who want nothing but the best for you.
So you’re struggling with a life issue? We all are. Feel ashamed about circumstances you have no control over? We’ve all been there. Being able to ask for help from others in a time of need is nothing to be ashamed of…especially if there is someone in your circle that can give you the much needed assistance.
Has someone come to your for help? Be honest. Now is not the time to pity them, or stroke their ego, but to give them a jolt of reality. Listen and try your hardest not to judge or belittle them. For some it takes a lot of courage to open up about a matter that is close to the heart. Most importantly, if they tell you something in confidence keep it that way. Why betray their trust? It only perpetuates why people keep things to themselves and keeps giving life to the one thing we want to get rid of…and that’s pride.
