Proud Not Humble?

What is Pride?

According to online sources its is associated with a direct emotion that carries two meaning. On a negative note it refers to an inflated sense of one's personal status or accomplishments often used synonymously with hubris. On the other hand, pride carries a positive connotation as it refers to a satisfied sense of attachment towards one's own or another's choices and actions that is reflected in praise, independent self reflection or a fulfilled sense of belonging.

It is also sometimes viewed as excessive or as a vice or as a vice, sometimes as proper or as a virtue. A sense of one's own proper dignity or value; self respect in your achievements, possessions or people you care about.

What is Humble?

An admirable quality that not many people have. It means that a person may have accomplished a lot or be a lot but doesn't really feel that it is necessary to brag about it. It also means to cut one's ego down to a size that is not necessarily done in a rude manner.

If you were to meet a humble person, he wouldn't be the kind of person who thinks lower of himself than others think he should. Instead, he would not think of himself at all. A humble person isn't interested in saying "I Suck" or "I'm not that great" as these statements come from a person who thinks he should be better than he is. A truly humble person isn't concerned with who he is or who he should be. He isn't concerned with himself at all, but instead he's concerned with other people.

Finally, to be humble means to know where your place is and nothing more or nothing less that what you are.
