“Vanity not only distances us from God: it makes us look ridiculous.” -Pope Francis, October 31, 2015. When we’re talking about the ego, it goes hand in hand with a strong feeling: pride. To a healthy degree, pride promotes ambition, ideas and personal success. However, if you are not careful, it will grow over your head. Rarely does anything good grow out of an inflated ego, but a veritable narcissistic disorder is likely to do so. Then excessive pride makes us believe that success is actually our own birth or that we are the masters of the universe. And the greater the fame and the longer the applause, the more our pride in accomplishments becomes a dangerous attitude and a morbid trait. The term pride comes from the Middle English ‘prede’, from late Old English ‘pryto’, Kentish ‘prede’, Mercian ‘pride’ “unreasonable self-esteem, especially as one of the deadly sins; haughtiness, overbearing treatment of others; pomp, love of display”. Pride is a fundamental emotion that is innate, not instilled in us. It is part of our self-awareness, but also part of the social need for belonging and respect. This article is about the spectacle of Pride. Almost all human beings have this but the magnitude alone decides whether it is healthy or not. In this article, we will find out why one is prideful and what dire moments this entails.
