    To Much

    I have a lot of it, but sometimes it isn't always a good thing.

    Too Much Pride....

    ... mostly when it comes to relationships. I tend to lose a lot of people this way, but I don't care. I'd rather have my pride than let a guy make a fool of me, so I tend to have a "my way or the highway" kind of attitude. It's hard for me to let my guard down and be vulnerable...

    I Have A Lot

    I have a lot of pride which I feel is bad. There are some things I take pride in and feel good about but I use my pride to my advantage though. I am prideful because I don't want to get hurt. It may seem confusing but my pride basically guards my heart from hurt.

    The Punished

    Proverbs 16:5 - Every one [that is] proud in heart [is] an abomination to the LORD: [though] hand [join] in hand, he shall not be unpunished. Proverbs 26:12 - Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? [there is] more hope of a fool than of him. Proverbs 16:18 - Pride [goeth...

    My Fuel

    My pride is my fuel to go on. It pushes me to be better, to be stronger, to win! And when I lose, my pride is there telling me I can't come in second place, I will not come in second place. When I'm told it can't be done, my pride tells me to attempt it, and if I fail it tells me...

    Pfth Sorry?

    I never thought of myself as the type of person who would have a lot of pride. My pride though, only adds up mostly to admitting when I'm wrong. I absolutely hate apologizing, even if it's for something that I know is my fault. Don't take me for a douchbag though. If it's...

    Pride

    I am such a proud guy, that if I feel that I am correct, I just do not want to budge or give in at all. I like to stand my ground. Is this a position of strength? No, it is far from it. Pride does cause rift and separates friends. Humility only draws people to you. If I could ask...

    "Humble" - Pride

    Too Much Pride to Stop

    I tend to prolong arguments beyond the length of time that it should last because I have too much pride to instantly forgive and forget.
