Pride is defined as a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired. From my personal experiences I've realized that pride could also be the thing that keeps you from being vulnerable enough to say that you're struggling in different areas in your life. A few days ago I came to grips that pride was holding me back from being free in certain areas in my life. I decided to take the mask off, be vulnerable and ask one of my brothers in Christ to pray for me concerning the areas I was struggling with. After I did that and he prayed, I went to sleep and woke up feeling like a burden was lifted. I encourage all who are afraid, to be vunurable, to open up instead of trying to carry that burden on your own. It's way better to let go of pride and become vulnerable and honest to someone who can lift you up in prayer and won't judge you.
