Pride, fear and stubbornness

This week I checked myself during a conversation where I let my own pride, fear and stubbornness get in the way of hearing the opinion of someone else.

My fear of doing something uncomfortable.  My pride of asking for help.  My stubbornness in thinking that my way is the only correct path forward.

I accept my own mind swirling down the dark path, check it and move on with accepting that another path is just as good.
