Pride is something that we all tend to have, and it is just a matter of how big it is

2014-03-29-1Pride is something that we all tend to have, and it is just a matter of how big it is. As long as we do not let our pride control our life then it is not necessarily harmful. Pride itself can be either negative or positive, but when our pride is driven by selfishness, then pride becomes a source of destruction because it leads to the danger of losing a sense of responsibility, humbleness, and respect to our friends and family members. There is a saying in Tibetan that, “A person who has pride will lose everything that they used to have earlier, such as knowledge and friendship, and it will become difficult in the near future to regain these things since they will always think they alone are the best.” Therefore, in my opinion, playing with pride can be negative and meaningless, and only humbleness will bring us friendship and respect.
