Sometimes we put a barrier around us to protect ourselves
from things that can potentially harm us.
And sometimes we do that in our mind as well.
Slowly but surely we tend to listen less.
And finally we stop listening..
The worse cause of this is due to pride.
We want to protect our pride so much and so dearly,
that we lose sight of what we had made;
A barrier that prevents people from reaching out to us.
I am pretty sure that pride can be good at times as it gives us confidence,
but use it excessively and we will become overconfident.
This is especially apply to men (generally).
Your greatest strength(pride) can also be your greatest weakness.
