I Have Too Much Pride

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    "Humble" - Pride

    Something got me thinking today. I saw a neighbour of ours taking some items of clothing and food stuff to his car boot. There were three black bags and one transparent(polythene) sac. These contained some new shirts too as I could still see the labels on them. It sure got me...

    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.

    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...
