Pride Vs. Self Love

Arrogance is NOT the love of yourself. Humility is NOT the dismissal of the positive self-perspective. Pride IS the pursuit of the EXPERIENCE or imitation of self-fulfillment by tearing others down, including yourself. It sickens me when we are fed with this idea that self-love and spending time and energy building yourself up is selfish, negative, and harmful. To put it simply:

Pride: I FEEL something like love for myself because of the flaws I see in others. If the flaws of others did not exist, i would HATE myself
