According to Merriam Webster , Pride is define as:
1: the quality or state of being proud: as
a : inordinate self-esteem : conceit
b : a reasonable or justifiable self-respect
c : delight or elation arising from some act, possession, or relationship
For me, one definition I can give is PRIDE is a 5 letter word that can ruin a relationship.
There are times, I have misunderstandings with my love ones and often they will say…
” It’s your pride that is killing you.” I would then say “PRIDE is all that I have and if I am right I will stand by my principle.” ( at times this is true )
Then I realized that PRIDE can indeed ruin a relationship, the more you hold the grudge the more it becomes bad especially if you are having that feeling to people you care about. Thus I told myself that I value family and true friends, thus when I feel something bad I have to weigh things and if it’s worth it I would be humble and accept things since relationship means more than anything.
Am I right? Am I wrong? I really don’t know but I know that Life needs to be enjoyed and holding grudges to people who you know will be there when you need them is simply a waste of time.
