Pride like any other virtues is inborn to all of us. Like love it is everywhere. Like kindness it can be cultivated. Like passion it can be motivated. Like dignity and integrity it can be claimed and be protected.
Pride is not about being selfish nor arrogant of what is possessed.
It is neither obsessive nor greedy of what is laid.
Instead, pride is an awareness of what we have, a sufficient reason to celebrate.
Pride has many colors, variations and expressions. Like a butterfly, it undergoes a process. It has no limits and boundaries for developments. Most importantly, pride is not for sale because it is about valuing one’s concept of dignified self.
