#AtoZChallenge DAY16: P for PRIDE

Day: #16 || Alphabet : P || Theme: Emotions || Word: Pride


We have all heard of the 7 deadly sins – Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath , Sloth and finally PRIDE. During my time here at the #AtoZChallenge I have tried my best to bring about the positive side of all kinds of emotions that we  human beings feel, the ones that make us alive and so keeping the track going am gonna discuss the emotion PRIDE  and how there is a thin line between Pride and Arrogance!

What is ARROGANCE?arrogantARROGANCE is a negative trait in all means. Arrogant people believe themselves to be superior be it looks, knowledge, skills they possess, possessions they have or all of these. The sole motive of arrogant people are to over power and look down upon others. Ego and being overly opinionated are the striking shades to these people.


So where does PRIDE come into picture ? And what is PRIDE? pOne can be feel pride in many ways – be his cultural and traditional roots, his upbringing, his family, friends, his accomplishments and more than anything pride in one’s own country. Self confidence is like the basic of the virtues that a Pride person possesses. When humbleness touches Pride , Pride becomes a positive emotion.

The main direction of pride is toward within in contrast to arrogance which has a more outward focus.


It is for us to make a constant effort to not cross the thin line and become arrogant about all that we are blessed with either naturally or accomplished by our own hard work. Nothing is more a blessing than being self-sufficient yet equally giving in nature.

P.S: Another day having writer’s block. All the best to everyone for the remaining days!!! 🙂 So glad to have come across some awesome blogs and have learnt so many new things during this journey.

  1. There is nothing more that I hate than arrogance1 Being prideful is not a bad thing, like you say, pride has to mesh with humility to be acceptable.

  2. A worthy topic. It is definitely a fine line, but we do need to recognize ourselves as much as we need to recognize each other. I don’t think that I do that enough and I know that most of my loved ones don’t either.
