Pride and it’s dangers

Pride can be a damaging trait. It makes it hard for us to see and admit mistakes, it puts unnecessary pressure on our relationship, and openly demonstrates a lack of care for others. Pride will also prevent us from asking for help when we need it most.

Slash – Pride can manifest itself in our reaction to our M. Try to take just a couple seconds to pause before responding to let that initial defensive reaction pass. 

Lumbergh – outside pressures and having to keep our pride in check at work can cause pent up emotional releases towards our closest relationships, specifically our families. .When you sense the change try to separate yourself from the situation rather than reacting in the moment. 

Slumberkins – had an opportunity to check his pride recently and was able to turn it into a learning moment. 

Stray cat – as he has grown in his career he has learned to respond by assuming he is wrong even when he might be right and allow himself the time to do the research and then respond with facts not emotions.

Appreciate the VQ support out there!
