Interesting thoughts and opinions on that word 'pride.'<quoted text>
Happy New Year's AQ :)
I think arrogance and pride are tightly related.
You can have someone so full of pride that they 'lord' their accomplishments over others. At the same time, false humility isn't appropriate.....
There's this saying "The Few, The Proud, The Marines"
I see it as a positive thing. Can it be used as a means to put someone down. Sometimes it is.
But just because sometimes it is, doesn't mean it always is, and if someone takes it that when when it's not meant that way, that's on them.
I am a Leo. Leos are known for having lots of pride. I am no exception. I may be stubborn, but I don't consider myself arrogant, snobbish or conceited (according to the definitions I found online.) Maybe others see me that way at times. If so, it is not intentional. I guess it's a trait that most likely can't be controlled if it's in the stars.
Just for fun I Googled 'leo pride' and this is the first website that came up.
Seems my exact opposite is Aquarius.:)
