That's really a tough question for me. I try to have little or no pride, but of course I do. I guess I adhere to the snippet from Proverbs, "pride goeth before the fall"...I try to keep pride out of the picture and place value less on material world and more on the spiritual world, and remember to practice humility on a daily basis. Easier said than done, and of course, I digress....
To be able to speak without taking back the words,
to be able to live without regretting life,
to be able to love without worrying about reciprocity,
to be able to stand without having anybody pull me down,
to be able to eat without begging for it,
to be able to use my intelligence without putting down somebody,
to be able to tell the truth without any fear or bitterness,
This is what pride is to me,
Pride is a five letter word which is easy to pronounce or spell out but it is far beyond the toughest work of the world to be maintained with dignity. In my opinion when I wake up in the morning and look at the mirror the 'ME' I always want and make sure that I do not look down and is not unable to face myself and that is what I called pride. There are hundred of sorrows in the world which can not be cleared or removed by me completely. but when I do a little good to a poor and needy and sleep with peace I call it as' a real Pride' for me. When I know how to take challenges in life and turn it the way I want, I call it a pride. Thus I feel any individual when does something and that gives him peace, dignity, self satisfaction from the conscious point of view, it is called pride of a person.
I think my pride, if it can be called that, is seeing others benefit from my words, influence or example, and seeing them pass it on to yet others. With each person, it grows and variegates into fuller, richer value for humanity. It assures me that one's single little candle multiplies the light like outcircling ripples on the water from a single drop of water; and that does make a difference, so that that it is well worth keeping one's influence good & shining bright and clear without discouragement but with hope and faith that it matters.
