Inhibition can be caused by pride.

Alcohol is the true antidote to inhibition.

alcohol and vitamins t, h, and c, when combined... try that...

pride is about as useful as regret, shame, or jealousy... few so called "emotions" have much point other than to make you feel like shit about somehting that you are doing, or not doing, or being, or not being, and so on and so forth... dont be proud, be confident! live life to its fullest extent at all times... and find love now, before its to late... after that, what point is there in pride?

"dont be proud, be confident!"
i think what you call confidence i call pride

" and find love now, before its to late... after that, what point is there in pride? "
i think they're both important

out of curiosity, how do you define love?

"that makes no sense to me."

i was reading about kissinger's relationship with nixon. he was very manipulative. how could he dare manipulate the president of the united states, without a huge ego?

Confidence is being sure in one's abilities where pride has more to do with boasting.

i use the word pride not confidence because i mean the emotion-

sure most people use the word pride to mean unfounded confidence

but i mean it in the sense of well-founded confidence

Well founded perhaps as in traditional or territorial. Pride must defend pride. Pride is more ego than emotion.

i think what you call confidence i call pride




and this is what we call a difference in opinion... to which we are all entitled!

and i do my best not to define love, but to let love define itself...
IMHO it is something far behind emotion or even human comprehension... love is a communication of the soul manifested in the human animal which isnt capable of comprehending certain things...

im sure that we are pobably using different words in the same context... you call it this and I call it that, but the bottom line is that i feel that the majority of emotions are pointless, the only serve to make you self concious, which isnt necesarily a bad thing in the right hands, or regretful, which is pointless in and of itself, you get the drift, but i understand your point as well.

i would say not necessarily. i take pride in a lot of the things i do. especially when i'm at work or being creative. most of the time i don't even mention what i have done or what i am feeling to other people, i just feel proud about it. it is a sense of accomplishment and self satisfaction. possibly boasting is an exterior result that stems from pride and/or confidence.?
