Pride is neither the ability to see what others wish you hadn’t noticed, nor is it refusing to lie about your beliefs when others demand it of you.
I was done with pretending to agree with things I had long considered to be supposition. I wanted to test what I understood to be true by walking in it. No more lying, “faking it till I make it,” or conforming to their outer rendition of faith to make these men happy. If this was pride, so be it. I’d display my pride and learn from the consequences. – Mere Dreamer
