So I'm curious, as anyone else had this problem?

I think you are a very strong person to write this. Knowing our own faults and taking ourselves seriously is a strength and a step to better lives. Now you just have to work on it :) I'm really proud of you that you can write this kind of thing.
I've definitely had pride take me out. Once upon a time before I married, I had quite a love affair with myself. I was young, smart, and had some VERY big accomplishments for someone under 21. There are people in this world who could have done just as well but didn't have the same opportunities I had, and it was foolishness to take so much credit for myself. I was poised to have a rocket of a career. Until the arrogance machine bit me in the ass.
The good news is my life went on and I'm happy. The bad news (or maybe good news in disguise) is that my pride fell down in a way that it never was able to get back up again. It broke me, but I would like to think for the better.1
