swallow your pride!

Rate this phrase:(0.00 / 0 votes)
Occasionally one will be shown to be exceedingly mistaken, misled or misinformed in his actions or assertions and pronouncements. This discovery and honest admission on the part of the advocate can be upsetting.

Your strongly held views, assertions, publications and loyal supporters have ALL been, without a doubt, proven wrong and mistaken in this instance. As a good friend, I recommend that you swallow your pride and drop the matter entirely.
