When pride consumes us

Make sure you never let pride consume you. It takes you down to hell, leaves you there and it dooms you.

Ever heard the term “pride is the devil”? Rollercoaster of suffering ride with devil.

Pride leads to nothing but a pitfall of pain. Conquering emotions and you act out in vain.

Pride leads to unnecessary new fights. Jumping into pointless battles holding on too tight.

Pride always exchanges a hurtful word and abandons the ones that needed to be heard.

Death from below and death from above. Pride ends relationships with people you love.

Everyone wants to stand with the proudest rod, not realizing that it leads to self sabotage.

Pride is a deceptive demon. It shows you how you were wronged and how you think you need to get even.

Pride is a life of emotional litter. It keeps you holding on to past poison leaving you bitter.

So if you don’t want your spirit to fall inside, don’t be a victim of the downfall of pride.
