Kennoye: To live at our best abilities we need to be well balanced. Understanding that even the little things are just important as the bigger things. "Time well spent produces progress well deserved." With that said I believe Pride is unnecessary. There is a difference between self-esteem and pride. Having confidence in your self is essential to your progress but pride hinders you because others tend to remain to themselves because we seem to feel that we are better than everyone else in terms of life. It has caused genocide in a large scale but what about the smaller scale. If you are losing sight of who you are make sure you understand which one you are lacking; pride or self esteem?
