Never Burn A Bridge That You May Need To Cross Again!

Bridge

This thought came to me while reading a post this morning.....it was about when people do things to us that really hurt or they do things that effect us in ways we just don't understand at the time...

My point is that no matter how bad things seem or get at the time remember that you may need that bridge at some point in the future and without it you may have a difficult time getting across!

 

I saw this saying the other day......

Apologizing does not always mean you are wrong and the other person is right ....It just means you value your relationship more than your EGO!

Great words of wisdom...so many people let their egos dictate their actions and then that very same ego prevents them from acknowledging it.

Rob, 

So very true!  We have had real estate deals my buyers terminated within due diligence and then decided they really did want the place the next week.  Good news, we'd been pleasant throughout and the other agent was a smart cookie and got it that my clients just had needed time to wrap their heads around the needed repairs.

All the best, Michelle

Good reminder.  Some real estate professionals have burned bridges by not maintaining contact with past clients.

Good to hear that you are you are planning to have Chrysanthemums in your garden.  You might like this one.

HI ROB!  Aren't you a good person with a great attitude! My daughter's friend, whenever friction erupts amongst the friends, always says, "Build a bridge and get over it."  How true!

But if you do have to burn a bridge, and sometimes it is necessary, burn it so that there's never a chance of it being rebuilt from either side!
