When we’re consumed with pride, we create a barrier between ourselves and the world. We don’t treat others as fair. We don’t love them the way we love ourselves.
I’ve seen a lot of relationships destroyed with pride — it’s the main reason we are disunited.
Some religious people take pride of their religion as the only true religion. Then they condemn the outsiders. Some politicians pride themselves as the most reliable and deserving leader. Then they rebuke their fellow politicians.
This, also happens in sports. Some loyal fans pride their favorite teams, believing their’s are the best in the league and other teams are no match. Then they rebuke the fans of other teams.
Also happens in every day life, in almost every aspect of life — schools, workplaces, businesses, and organizations. There’s always that annoying person who would pride their beliefs and opinions.
Maybe that’s normal. But it creates chaos. Are we supposed to understand and love each other?
