Pride & Compromise… The Story of the Thin Line!

Introduction…

From Wikipedia:

The Seven Deadly Sins, also known as the Capital Vices or Cardinal Sins, is a classification of the most objectionable vices… It consists of “Lust”, “Gluttony”, “Greed”, “Sloth”, “Wrath”, “Envy”, and “Pride”.

The Story Goes…

As it was told, a long long time ago, there existed a very thin line between the hideous sin “pride” and the beautiful virtue “compromise”…

Whatever people did, especially within the frames of a relationship, pride was always there to wreck and destroy the relationship while compromise did its best to conserve it and raise it higher, to a more elevated level…

One day, compromise felt really bad for all the problems pride was causing… It decided to go address pride, trying to bring it back to its senses and urge it to be more lenient with people…

Compromise said: “I do understand how powerful you are dear pride… I know that you have the ability to ruin relationships that are meant to last as well as end friendships and kill love… Therefore, I would like to plead to you and beg you, out of weakness, to be gentle on poor souls who don’t know any better but to believe in you and follow you blindly”

Pride sniffed, smirked then said: “You poor little thing you! Coming here to beg me to quit something I do not cause! People bring their misery amongst themselves… They know too much pride is bad for them, yet, they chose to submerge themselves it in… Even if I wanted to do something about it, and trust me I don’t, I can’t! People are given choices and whatever they choose is their path. Regardless of my will or intention, I have no power to change the path any two choose for each other; they must be able to do it themselves”

Disappointed and sad, compromise said its goodbyes and left, wondering what will happen to the world with people’s whims and sins in control…

With time, compromise started getting older and feeble, while pride managed to get stronger…

Too many love stories came to an end…
Countless tears were shed…
Numerous friendships were diminished…

And now, at our present days, the thin line between pride and compromise seems to be fading with compromise being just a word, stripped from all its beauty and stuck in the corner of the doomed!
