A feeling of self-respect sometimes gets to us.
We sometimes feel more important than others.
This negatively affects our lives.

These effects might be
Losing friends, family, work mates,
Opportunities and a whole lot more.
You might even lose yourself.

To shun pride, the following are of good use:
Don’t be too proud to ask for help even when you need it.
Respect people around you and avoid self-respect
Lowering yourself, this wins you peoples’ hearts, opportunities, etc.
Avoid talking about yourself and things you’ve accomplished all the time.
Avoid the attitude of thinking you’re better than others
or maybe that you are ahead of everyone around you.

Life is better with friends and family.
It’s boring when you’re alone.
Swallow your pride.
