Do you let your pride and stubbornness get the best of you?

I do a lot of times and I won't give in no matter what. I know it can be a bad thing but I have a mix of pride and stubbornness which kills me.



Pride

a feeling of self-respect and personal worth




Stubbornness



the trait of being difficult to handle or overcome


the trait of being hard to influence or control

  • Being stubborn isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'm stubborn and I'm called it all the time. Stubborn > Naive. It's better to be a leaf firmly latched onto the ground by a large rock then to be a white wall, easily painted any sort of color.

  • I actually lack both pride and stubbornness. I am strong willed, but I have a meek and submissive nature.

    • I understand! I am a non-confrontational person in general, so I prefer to work things out if the person is really close to me! :)

    • Well that's cool! :-)

  • Actually, my pride enables me to accomplish great things I think. My ego and fear of failure guarantees my success

  • I've gotten better with my stubbornness, you couldn't tell me shit when I was a teen. Pride has never been an issue with me though.

  • Oh, I don't let it get "the best of me", my pride and stubbornness are what make me who I am.

  • I don't think I have pride, but maybe that is a form of pride and so I have pride :-( I am just a simple guy, nothing special.

    I can be stubborn though sometimes

  • What if I told you that an easy way to control someone is to tell them they are hard to control.

  • It does , i struggled a lot to learn to control myself. The secret is to realize when i am being hard to deal with and i try to relax and to think the why i am being stubborn.

    If i find that my reason to being stubborn is stupid i just let it go and apologize

  • I do sometimes when I'm wrong. But if I feel like I'm right, I will never shut up. Like my pride is me not really apologizing or something.

    Trying to work on it, but it's really hard lol.
