If there is pride in your heart it will be expressed in one of three ways. Firstly, through self-righteousness that results from feeling insecure, the need to prove yourself or a “better than” attitude. Secondly through self-reliance, having to be strong, not trusting others or knowing how to build relationships. Thirdly through self-pity, focusing on the negatives with a lack of joy, feeling unappreciated and unloved.
