When pride becomes a problem

I created this blog to be able to express myself, even if I have paid for the privilege and even if no one ever reads this.  How I see it is that it is a tiny amount to pay to work on my favourite hobby, with the added incentive that since I paid for it I might as well get my moneys worth.  I do have a huge dilemma however, in that I have no idea what I am doing! Definitely a first world problem, but is it bad to want to have a cool blog like the cool kids?

There is a plethora of unlimited resources to help me improve this stuff, the internet, the local library offers courses, I could even choose to enrol in higher education.  The most obvious starting point though would be my blog host.  I have a paid for blog including unlimited support, it’s the first step of ASKING for help that stumps me.  Call it pride.  Call it stubbornness but I am ingrained with independence such that it is a disadvantage at times.

This is why I hate getting a flat tyre on my car.  I use to think it was the inconvenience that made me mad.  After mulling over the last one, I realised that’s not at all why I hate it.  It is because I don’t know how to change a tyre.   I have paid for roadside assistance membership and therefore reliant on some person to change my tyre along with providing other basic car assistance.  A solution I am not happy about though clearly not enough to learn how to change a tyre.  This is one thing where I feel pride has no place because cars are too befuddling!

I know eventually I will have to swallow my stubborn pride but it’s not entirely a bad thing only time consuming.


  1. Nothing wrong with swallowing you ‘stubborn pride’, it’s fat free, so won’t gain weight from swallowing it.

    1. If only that would translate to the scales! Gosh I’m feeling the love today! I’ve had twice as many comments! Thank you reading, for that you will get one big hug tomorrow 🙂
