Boasting Vs Speaking With Pride
The difference between boasting and speaking with pride is the intention. When you boast, you make something sound amazing to make someone else feel bad. When you speak with pride it is to make others feel good about something and make them share your same interest and joy. The thing that sometimes confuses these two are how others react to them. When someone is boasting or speaking with pride we can react by feeling insignificant or be inspired by the news they have shared. Being an optimist hasn’t hurt anybody and not letting what others want to make us feel affect us, only makes us proactive human beings. It doesn’t mean that ignoring others intentions isn’t hard, but by doing so, you become a better person by trying.
