When you can handle it its positive else it leads to destruction- I doubt whether you can understand these broad terms - MB . why are you posting some questions which u dont understand at all and irrelevant to your life . be within your range . talk about Truck driving on highway - taking last breath on highway etc which you do usually . I will take smart steps to block this ID .

Pride is an insidious spiritual cancer. It lies at the root of all sin and self-centeredness, producing a profound darkness in the minds of those who tolerate it.

Some forms of pride are obvious (at least when they occur in the lives of others). Arrogance, boasting, haughtiness and snobbery are all fairly easy to see. Consequently, we tend to equate pride with such glaring manifestations. But there is another form of pride which is doubly dangerous; it is a pride which masquerades as humility.

Another is a child who is a prodigy in many activities and gains lots of respect from his or her friends and family.
However, when people have too much pride, the dark side begins to take over. It may cause them to think they are better than everyone else. This could result in vanity, corruption, greed, arrogance, and recklessness. If that happens, they could mess things up, and the consequences will include losing everything ...more

Pride is always negative to me. It is never positive. Pride kills everything - relations, friendship, character and life.
