I’ve never been one to have low self-esteen, especially when it comes to my appearance, but I’m starting to wonder, when does confidemce turn into pride? Is there a way I can tell if ive slipped into pride? And if I have, how can I humble myself?

Well, imo, confidence is tantamount to being content with yourself, or your skills, i.e., “I really like my essay about Oscar Wilde. I did good work.” or “I think my hair looks good today, and I’m happy with it how it is.”
Pride, to me, is a preoccupation with something, or a superiority. I.e., “My essay MUST BE THE BEST I hope everyone else fails because I’m better.” or “My hair is better than her hair. Everyone else’s hair sucks.”
