pride or humility. which do you pick?

when is pride self respect and when does humility arrive at the right time to not compromise your good-willingness and sanity? old habits die hard on both ends and so one must wonder if there is ever a 'right' choice.

is life too short to (a) invite a person back or (b) let time continue to pass with no words or action? i can't decide.

maybe there's middle ground. something called grace. an open heart that accepts genuine intent and a little bit of a steel gate when your gut signals danger and protection is the only answer. sounds fair enough, but getting there is no cake walk. it's easier to swing back and forth between black and white. pride and humility.

which do you pick most often? what makes you feel safe enough to step past pride into grace and courage to address something that's gone wrong? or for that matter, not address it except with silence, patience and hope that the other person will blink first? how do you do it...?
