year ago

In some societies, pride is considered to be a negative form of human feelings, but psychologists claim that being proud can be healthy. Pride is not always egocentric, it’s also about self-confidence and a motivational attitude that is not only beneficial to you, but that can also encourage others. We suggest that you also get some inspiration from the people on our list.
