Pride

Pride, a characteristic with pros and cons. Now it is a good things, a word to describe, self-confidence but once and still is one of the 7 Deadly Sins. A brother to Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Envy, Wrath/Rage and Sloth. Pride is another word to Self-Confidence, a synonym to egoism or dignity.

Pride is sin in the eyes of some because, it blinds. It creates a fantasy to the prideful, that they can do what they like, when ever they like and they will succeed. Yes Pride is good, it is confidence, but not when it is a constant thing, not when it gives you such a good impression of yourself, that you detach yourself from the world and think you can do everything. Many people who have pride as a daily trait, get themselves killed or un-liked by society.

"It is better to lose your pride with someone you love rather than to lose that someone you love with useless pride"- Johnny Depp

When one is full of Pride only Humility may bring them back. For Humility is the opposite of Pride. Only when a selfless act is done, does Pride subside. But as humans, Pride never goes away, and so when I write this, I want to tell you that Pride is good, it is healthy, but like all food when over eaten,you get fat, and when Pride gets to your head, you get fat with boldness, that the most cruelest result is Death.

So keep that in mind, because I try to, and in the comments below if you like write down another if you want to read about it. I would like another!
