Being proud is acknowledging what you can and can't do. In the face of any person you can be proud of yourself without shame or guilt. You love yourself in a healthy way.
When you brag you either A are showing off to hurt/annoy someone.
B doing it to try and get attention and approval
C are ignorant of your own skills and talk too much.
With A, you are being negative and without love and empathy
With B, you seek approval in others for self verification and you won't be a happy human
With C, You have a long life to live yet...1

I'd say that bragging is kinda when someone will relay some semi-unrelated information for no other reason than to sorta rub it in etc. for example- people could be talking about visiting their grandma's house in an area three hours from their house at a cool location, and then I could be like "oh yeah, I just traveled to Bali". It's somewhat related.. But not really.. It puts grandma's house way out of its league in comparison.. Hence it being bragging somewhat. Since both parties are more than likely aware of the big difference between both vacations.. Being proud is more of mentioning something that's completely relevant in a conversation and wanting a sorta happy reaction. I'd say that bragging is usually used to get a jealous or envious type of feedback.. Generally.. You wouldn't really brag to get someone really happy for you etc. so it just depends on the context of the situation and how you bring up your topic. Nice question! I hope this helps :)1
