pride - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
When your pride feels warm, as a form of love, you're doing it right.
Pride is okay if you've earned it the right way, with hard work, dedication and love. When you do something so magnificent as a gift from the heart and soul, you can stand back and feel proud, that's healthy. The problems come when people seek unearned pride and that is a rotten root of our societal tree, spreading the rancid branches of racism, negative-nationalism, religious hatred... and so for those who seek to appear superior through any unearned trait... stop... find the healthy roots of love, passion and empathy... of kindness and giving from the heart.... earn your pride and then it is yours.
Pride is only a vice when it is cold hearted or mean, when it is devoid of love and cares not if others are able to achieve the same.
When you make acts of kindness, when you pursue your passions to raise up yourself and others, you should have a healthy sense of pride.
