10) the only thing worse than waking to find that you have two more hours of sleep and fighting to fall back again quickly is doing the math a realizing your partner is sound asleep and has four more hours before they must rise.
And one to grow on:
Pride can be a beautiful thing. A job well done. A child well raised. Pride can also compromise relationships. Cost jobs. Keep you from being your best self. I’m sure pride is some how tied to the human nature urge for survival. What about a life in which you hope for more that to just survive. You hope for depth of friendship. Support in peer groups. You hope to thrive. We no longer need pride in the same way that we once did, I suppose that’s why it was deemed a sin. That as we have culled together a society we have had to fight against some urges. Like anything inherent, if you become aware of it you can change it. After time the behavior becomes habit. If we choose to live together, pride must be secondary to support, understanding, and empathy. You can be proud of who you are as you strive to know those different from yourself. Have pride in the gifts you were given and use them to understand and help others who were given less. Charity is not just dropping a bag of clothes at the good will. To truly give you must also receive. You can not do that if you hide behind your mask of pride.
