My relationship with my pride is a funny one.
Pride is known as one of the deadly sins--I think for good reason.
Pride can blind one to other possibilies: better alternatives to the options one has accepted, better explanations for what is hapining in one's world, better understanding of the basic facts, better POV fo particular aspects of reality, etc.
But always thinking there is someone who is more knowledgable, more qualified, more cabable, more cometent, at whatever one's role is tiring, and can eventually hurt self-esteem.
Still, with nearly 7 billion people on the planet, it seems also likely to be true.
Not being certain (that is having doubt) that ones perspective is the one to keep, is the opposite of the pride to which I am refering.
Anyway, how does one deal with this reality?
Of not being closed minded due to pride, but not being anxious due to doubt?
Or to put it more positively, to have doubt, but be calm about it?
