I agree, I don't think pride has a place in this or many other places. Unfortunately, that sort of off putting attitude can be found in many areas like veganism, politics, religion, sports, even education.
I read a lot of blogs and I see verbal attacks frequently, it always makes me sad. It isn't about being right or wrong, just a journey. My reference to my choices of how I live my life (previous post) are more or less an example of how my journey has progressed. I would not want to put this information out in very many places as I would most certainly be attacked! So many times when confronted with new ideas people think there has to be a right or wrong in it and get defensive or attack. I am grateful that for the most part here on this forum the people are friendly and open minded.
I have made so many mistakes along the way and have changed my mind many times on what is right for me, right now. It is a journey and I hope to keep this journey on the path of progression and kindness. It is important to realize that a decision that is good for today may need adjustment tomorrow.
Always offer kindness and a soft word to the beings around you; You do not know their journey. Your words can be the hug they need or the shove that breaks them.
