Pride is a sin which I am not sure should really be a sin in a way. I think it is good to have pride, but not to be egotistical with it.
I have pride in myself. I take pride in my appearance, and how I present myself to the world. I try to talk well and act maturely, I am trying to swear less and I always try to always dress well and never dress too messily when out in public, and as sad as it is, first impressions count and people’s perceptions of you mean an awful lot.
There are times when your pride is something which stands in your way, and that is when humility is important. I think I am a reasonably humble person, I will back down sometimes, but I can be very prideful and just argue for the hell of it and not back down simply for the sake of I don’t want to pretend that I am wrong, even though deep down I know that really I am.
In my opinion pride is something that everyone should have, but it should be balanced out with a share of humility. You should be proud of yourself, what you have down and what you are capable of, but show deference to those who can teach you something, and those who deserve your respect. Being humble doesn’t mean being submissive, it means that you understand that you are not the be all and end all of the human race, but an individual who will forever be learning to be a better person.
