Healthy PrideSomething to think about as our new world unfolds!If is oft times said that pride cometh before the fal. Arrogant pride certainly does. The quiet pride that one receives from making positive change and gaining healthy self respect is a major building block for a happy life.If you know you are lacking in humble pride and your past haunts you, we should talk. No matter what the outside world may see, only you truly know your insides!! luv
Pride works from within; it is the direct appreciation of oneself.
Pride should not be feared. It is listed among the “seven deadly sins,” but that is arrogance or false pride, not healthy pride that is a necessary part of self-esteem. Our program teaches us that the pride that “goes before a fall” is an unhealthy state, a symptom of egotism, grandiosity, and arrogance.
No harm will come to spiritual growth from the pride experienced when we freely admit to ourselves that any accomplishment of ours was not made by us alone. Humble pride acknowledges the guidance of others and faith in a Higher Power whom we call upon for inspiration and motivation.
