I think if you will do a little research, you will find that pride and self-respect are often mistaken for one another. There is a tremendous difference between the two. Pride is a manifestation of the ego and defined as satisfaction with one's self.

Self-respect is defined as belief of one's own worth and integrity. Contrary to pride, self respect serves our soul.

I believe dignity or value pretty much go hand in hand with self-respect.

I didn't make it to church today because I was stricken at 4:30 a.m. with a migraine. I hate those things.

I am leaving shortly to see a dear friend who is dying from cancer. He doesn't have much longer with us, and I'm devastated. His children will be there, and I hate it for them. We all watched their mom die of cancer 12 years ago. She was my very best native Texas friend, and I miss her dearly. She and I were two peas in a pod.
My DH gets migraines, and it is debilitating for him....I hope you feel better...

I lost 2 good friends within the last 6 months to cancer It breaks your heart to the core....my thoughts and prayers are with you..

...forget about this stuff on this forum for the moment...you have people who need your support..and you need support yourself...

take care of YOU please Canine*Castle!!!

..the drama will be waiting when you return...guaranteed....

"Pleasure or satisfaction taken in an achievement, possession, or association." is not the same as bragging. One can take satisfaction in his or her accomplishments without feeling the need to inform everyone else of them.

Thanks so much for your kind wishes regarding my friend and the migraine. It's much better today. It dulled by late afternoon yesterday, and that's always a good sign.

I just finished crying my eyes out over my friend's condition. I controlled it well yesterday albeit while talking with his two daughters, we all shed quiet, if you will, tears. My son and their youngest brother were best friends while growing up...actually we were all neighbors for a while. They lost their oldest brother in 1980. He was 16 and electrocuted while putting up a CB antenna on top of their roof. Talk about heartbreak. I don't know how some people hold up with such tragedy in their lives.

If it weren't so bloomin' hot, I'd be outside exercising and working in the yard as a stress reliever. I thought getting up very early might help but when I stuck my head outside, I decided it wasn't worth risking some kind of heat-related illness.

I put myself in the middle of all the silliness on the forums. I have no one to blame but myself. For the life of me, I don't understand why. My guy friend, a native Texan and a wonderful and totally different that what I consider a typical Texan, basically told me I was silly for falling into such a ridiculous trap. Believe it or not, he is so not Texan, I don't know how he did it. LOL!!! I love that guy.

I trust the chore albeit excitement is coming along quite well.

To stay on topic, I will say that right now, my old city (Burbank) in CA is somewhat like Texas. It's pretty warm out there right now, but not nearly as bad as it is here. My friends are complaining though.

If you so desire, there is much to read on the internet about pride, so without further ado, let's just say there is a very thin line between being proud and being boastful and conceited.

They are just belaboring that point with the intent to distract from the obvious...that Texans love to talk about Texas. Everyone knows it including Texans but they can't admit it that so they argue these silly points about pride vs. boasting or they assail people like myself who raise this point. Nonetheless, should any of us be suprised. Did we expect proud Texans to acknowledge their faults....never! Praise Momo...bless her heart, she is a housewife with 2 kids who sacrafices her time to spend all day defending the great state of Texas
