Proud is being arraogant and vain and thinking about yourself as the greatest around, with scant respect or regard for other and thier feelings around you. Where as Self respect is when you respect yourself for the person that you are, dont taking things lying down when they are hurled at you and not being a dorrmat or a chamacha for soemoen at teh cost of your own values.

Many people get confused between pride and self respect.
People often consider a person of self respect as a proud person.
A person of self respect has respect for himself as well as for others whereas a proud person always thinks that he is the best, nobody can beat him.

To be Proud means to take Pride in your achievements. Proud can be positive and negative. There is nothing wrong if you feel proud about your achievements but never display this Pride if you do then it becomes negative and people will take you for being haughty and would keep you at a distance. A person can be proud of scaling the ladder of success even if he hails from a humble background. For eg a rickshaw puller's son is rightfully proud to become an Engineer. But a rich man's son if he is proud then he is worthless because he is proud of something his father achieved not him. Self respect..every person should have self respect only that brings out his individuality. A person without self respect is almost beastial. I mean if you can't respect your Self WHO WIll??
