Don’t let pride get in the way

One of the toughest lessons I’ve experienced around vulnerability is that pride can get in the way… it can so easily stop you from sharing with someone that you just don’t know what to do and you really hurt.

It happened for me when my marriage was on the rocks. While all my friends in Hong Kong knew what was happening, I was too proud to tell my sister back home in Scotland. I felt ashamed. Years later, she asked why I didn’t let her know … she would have liked to have been there for me. I cried when I heard this.

What I saw was that pride can exclude those who want to be there for you. Unconsciously, what you do is you turn your back on them and miss an opportunity to have a closer relationship. Much better to let go of your shame, feel uncomfortable and open your heart. Learn how to be comfortable being uncomfortable!
