Swalling your pride…
Sometimes you gotta shut up, swallow your pride and accept that you’re wrong. It’s not giving up, it’s called growing up.

Letting go of pride…
The world says it’s all about self, but God calls us to humble ourselves. It is our job to let go of our pride and show His love to others. — Made In His Image (@BlessedTeen) March 21, 2013
The opposite of pride is humility, the “moral virtue that keeps a person from reaching beyond himself. It is the virtue that restrains the unruly desire for personal greatness and leads people to an orderly love of themselves based on a true appreciation of their position with respect to God and their neighbors.”
He whose heart rejects humility does not know God and cannot truly love his neighbor because he is too busy loving himself.
Before destruction the HEART of a man is haughty; but humility goes before honor. Prideful & boasting spirits are disgusting to God Almighty

There is a holy pride. Holy pride is the kind that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had. That is in knowing your value and dignity in GOD’S EYES, as He defines you, regardless of what government and popular society may say about you. Dr. King knew that what God says trumps what society may say.
