Sometimes we have to swallow our pride

Each of us has pride.  Once touched, it is very difficult for us to accept it especially if we think we are in the right position.  This is the reason why there are lots of miscommunication happens, broken relationships and arguing of two person.  Two minds with two different understanding of a certain issue puts the relationships in the rough road.  It happens to me many times already.  And it took me days to think things over before decided to swallow my pride to save the friendship that is built for years.  At first, I am hesitant to do it because I thought doing it means a defeat or me surrendering the battle that I have fought.  But thinking about it thoroughly, it is best to do the first move to save everything that was built.  After doing it, the heavy feeling in my heart is gone and I have peace of mind.  I can face the world with the smile because I have done very nice move to save the friendship I have with my best-friend.

If you are in this kind of situation right now, try to think things over.  Look for the happy moments and memories you have shared for it will help you realized and decide what should be done correctly.  If your hurt, learn to forgive, if you think you pride is touched, swallow it for once to save the broken relationship.  It is not bad to swallow it if we do it for good reasons.  It is difficult to accept it at first but sometimes we have to swallow our pride for it will give us peace of mind.  And swallowing our pride means we value the relationship as well as the person.

One-sided love

I have heard different love story from friends and some people I know.  There are happy and sad stories.  And also heard different conflicts in a relationship.  Also, some friends seek for an advises from me that makes me feel like an expert.  I do love when they come and seek for advises from me because I do get an idea of what kind of the relationship they are having.  At some point give me an idea to do if I was in the same situation like they have.

One story that interest me the most is the one-sided love.  It is the kind of love that a friend is going through right now.  It is the kind of love that only her who values and give importance of their relationship.  Sad to say, the ma does not value her at all and did not see her presence and the time she devoted for him.  Seeing her suffering from the kind of relationship she has right now makes me sad.  Though I see her smiling, I know deep inside her she is crying.  As a friend I am trying to cheer her up and makes her feel she is important.  Though I was not able to help her 100%, I hope that the pain she has right now will fade and that she can finally move on.  It is not easy I know but I think it is important to think of ourselves sometimes and make ourselves important too.
