Pride prevents many from seeking needed advice. As a result they are hurting more seriously as they go along in life. It takes humility to admit faults and limitations. It takes courage to do something about them. Will you be a fool and avoid the aid of those who can help you?
Pride is synonymous with vanity, which is empty pride. It supports a whole array of sins, such as jealousy, bitterness, vindictiveness, self-pity, conceit, inordinate ambition, slander, gossip, maligning, implacability, and revenge motivation.
May we never refuse to others the sympathetic understanding and assistance, which we would want if we were in their troubles.
