    Pride of being but proud to be something..

    Example, pride as mother characterizes self..
    Proud to be someone's mother has more emphasis on the other person rather than the self

    msoensson is correct as usual. You can have pride in yourself but be proud of others. That is usually the case, however there are exceptions. I was proud to have served in the military and take pride in having done my duty.

    Let's say,

    You are helping someone and you want everyone to know that you helped someone, in this case you want to feel PROUD of you...


    You are helping someone and you don't even want the closeone to know about it, in this case you can feel your PRIDE...

    got it...
