Self-Pity

“One doesn’t have to be good-looking, talented, intelligent, powerful, or rich to be proud. Pride also infects some of the ugliest, seemingly ungifted, ignorant, oppressed, and poorest people. SELF-PITY is the pride of the weak and suffering. It’s the most subtle form of pride because, while pretending to be very needy, it is actually unrenewed self clamoring for attention. Priding itself in its deprived status, self-pity often masquerades as “humility.” It’s delusional, seeing itself as “a victim” for its own failures and mistakes. When self-pity refuses to acknowledge its loathsome condition, it is incurable and deadly.” -Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
