Pride is a two way street

Pride is a two way street.
It's a fine line between having some pride and being too proud to come over to the other persons side and be the peacemaker.
In life, sometimes you are in situations where you don't have all the answers, or know what to do.
In the end, it all boils down to the type of person you want to be.
I have always been on the stubborn side. At times I have been the type who would be stubborn enough to let a friendship die just because I didn't want to be the first person to come over and make peace with a friend when something happened to damage the friendship.
As I've grown older I've tried not to be that way. But at times I have started to go to far over to the other side of the ledger. There comes a time when you have to maintain your pride and realize that some people don't really want to maintain a friendship with you. To attempt to be friends with those people only means you have a lack of self worth and very low self esteem and pride.
Sure, it hurts to have a friendship that seemed to be so great and give you so much joy die, but it hurts even more when you realize that the other person doesn't enjoy your company or care that much about you anymore. Either way, the reality is still the same.
So its always a tough call when you aren't sure but are pretty sure that the friendship is over. But you have to maintain your pride and if that person is really is your friend they must come towards you as well.
The temptation is always to give in and be the one who comes forward. But you can only do that so many times until you really hate yourself because you have lost the once proud pride you had.
