Are you a proud person? You know, it's good to be proud of yourself sometimes, but there's some people that really let it go up to the head, and can even be scumbags sometimes. I already saw people fight or lie because they were to proud to accept the truth, about thenselves, about others... There's a lot of people that are too proud for example to accept his own fears, to accept he/she is wrong about something. I see people like these all the time. What about where you live? Is there too much proud people too? Edit what I forgot: I don't consider myself a proud person, If I fear something, I just say, If I need help I just ask for it.

Good to be proud sometimes, but some people can be prideful to the point of being stubborn. We're not an army of one out there. Sometimes we do need plenty of help from other people. We might not want to admit we need help. There are some people who are so prideful they would rather sink on their own, than swim with others. It's galling to admit it, but I see people like this every day. Some of them I know rather well. The last to admit they need help, the last to admit their fears, at least until it is too late.

It's really sad to see so much people beeing idiot at this point. Is that so hard to say something or ask for help when you need it? I don't have this problem at all, when I need help I just ask for it from someone I know I can trust, It solves things quicker, better than having problems trying to do everything all alone.

I agree! Some people would rather destroy themselves than admitting that they need other people. They're just that stubborn.

Pride is something all of us have in some measure.. being able to know when to draw the line and have a realistic head on ones shoulder is important. I know I am proud of who I am.. not what I have achieved.. I am happy with myself and the people around me.. I accept people as they are and happy to see them accept me as I am.

I agree with you, besides controlling your pride, you must have pride of yourself or something that you did, because if you don't do so, you can't like/love yourself, and that's something important that people actually don't do much, but as always, pride must be controlled so people don't pass the limits.

pride can come in all forms, but its good to know when to ask for help and be able to do it

I think there's a thin line between being proud of oneself vs. having high self-esteem and confidence. There's nothing wrong with being proud of one's achievement but what irks me is when they start boasting and bragging about it. I can't stand being in their presence.

@ZHVegas Yeah and it just makes you feel like staying away from them. With social media now it's worse - they just use it to show off.

Beeing insecure is more a matter of trust, if you trust the person you are speaking with or not, insteand of lying you can just hide it and not talk about, say that you prefer not to talk about that subject, but there's people that just lie, they hide thenselves with lies, or lie to look cool.
