What pride can do to your relationship.

Believe it or not ,pride
has a lot to do with
how we act in
relationships.
The question is, when
is pride a good or bad
thing in a relationship?
I believe that pride is
an asset especially in
the beginning of a
relationship. Your
pride helps to hold up
your high standards.
Pride won’t let you be
second place to anyone
and therefore reflects
your self worth. This
type of pride,
demonstrated by love
for self, is healthy in
the beginning of a
relationship.
Pride should be the
reason you don’t give
too much of yourself
too early in the
relationship. Example:
Don’t call or text, let
him contact you! Don’t
offer to go to his place,
let him come to you.
Don’t buy him
expensive gifts, let him
lavish you. The key is
to let him express how
much he likes you
before you reciprocate.
Ladies, even if you are
head over heals for a
guy, don’t show it! Let
your pride hold you
back from making
yourself vulnerable.
Allow the guy to chase
you enough before you
give in.
The disadvantages of
lacking Pride and thus
giving too much of
yourself too early are as
follows:
*Men will most likely
take advantage of a
woman who gives too
much too soon and not
appreciate her.
*A man is more likely
to get tired of women
who gives too much.
*Giving too much too
soon will NOT advance
the relationship
compared to a woman
who is more reserved.
Now ladies, onto the
flip side. If you thought
holding on to your
pride was hard, letting
go of your pride is
even harder! Once you
are in a long term,
loving relationship,
knowing when to let go
of pride is the tricky
part. You must be
confident in yourself
and in your partner.
Letting go of pride
requires a mature
person. Letting go of
pride should be done
by a woman who
knows where she
stands in the
relationship and has a
mutual emotional
dependency with her
partner. Love and
respect must be
unquestionable and in
full effect.
Bottom line: Once love
is born, pride dies. For
those who study love
understand that pride
is the opposite of love.
If you really love
someone you will do
things that pride once
prevented you to do.
Consider the deeper
things in life you do for
love like: forgiveness,
affection, acts of
service and kindness,
give gifts, and use
words of endearment.
A Jazz icon that I
admire, Sade, states,
“Love is stronger than
pride.”
My advise is: Let pride
go and let love grow!
Be blessed, spread
love. Check our new site here: http://www.relationshipcapsules.com
