i wrote a song… in my mind

i got a case of the prides

with 5 comments

there’s nothing like a physical ailment that turns a grown adult into a little kid.  it could be a common cold, a broken limb, or something more serious that just turns you into someone who just wants someone to be there for him or her.  you want someone to be there to take care of you, pamper you, or just to keep you company.

with that being said, i haven’t been feeling too well this past week.  the thing is, i haven’t had too many people around to keep me company or to take care of me.  not that they didn’t want to, but a lot of it was my own pride.  i don’t like to admit that i need help or that i’m not alright.  when people would ask what was wrong, i’d say i was fine and that was the end of that.  i’d like to say there’s a little bit of nobility in that (isn’t there?  i’m not the only one am i?).  i mean, isn’t it kind of noble to not let other people worry about you?  i know christianity teaches you that it isn’t noble.  it’s being prideful.  if you’re going to rejoice, rejoice together and if you’re going to suffer, suffer together.  and i guess from a nonchristian standpoint, it’s not very noble either.  you’re supposed to let people know that you’re not doing well so that they can help you, otherwise it’s just known as being the “lone ranger“.  you’re not supposed to face things on your own.  so i guess in all aspects, it’s not noble at all.  i shouldn’t be prideful in asking for help or admitting that i’m not alright.

tell me i’m not the only one who does this.

    it’s funny though how when we approach God, most if not all of our love is based on our need for Him.
