P is for Proud #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Feelings and Emotions from A to Z in 55 Words. Today, P is for Proud.
She stares at me with hurt written all over her face.
A lump rose in her throat and her body shook involuntarily.
Tears sting her eyes as she silently pleads to stay back.
A part of me screams, “We’re not meant to be!”
And a part of me smiles that she loves me despite everything.
Join me in enjoying blogs from fellow A to Zers… Parul and Prasanna today! Do share some blog love with them too!

Isn’t love mixed with pride such a strange beast? Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

Strange indeed… wonder how the two meet. Is it true love in that case?

Pride is such an interesting emotion…sometimes it’s to our detriment and other times, it can be so powerful.
April 18, 2015 5:47 am|
This is such a unique take on Pride, but very apt. Nicely done, Shilpa. 🙂

This happens. Pride comes to us no matter how bad the situation inducing the pride is. Its only natural. Short but powerful post.

A great take on the emotion! Sometimes the feeling of pride comes involuntarily..negative or positive.
April 18, 2015 10:03 am|
That is a completely different take on the emotion! Lovely 🙂

Pride is such a strong emotion. At times it is the only solace!

A serious post today, pride well narrated.

Pride can be a pain in the /%/%&… – sometimes an obstacle for love, I think. Good one, Shilpa:-)

April 19, 2015 9:51 pm|
Pride – is a known enemy , tough to tame.
But this post, a bit too tough to accept.
April 20, 2015 9:59 pm|
Hmm. Wish it wasn’t so tough to swallow…
April 20, 2015 10:19 pm|
I never thought of pride in this kind of situation! Interesting take.
April 21, 2015 11:00 am|
A wonderful take on pride! 🙂
April 22, 2015 12:51 pm|
Sometimes despite the love, feelings and all the emotions we have for a person, we just have to move away. Beautiful. 🙂
