. . . comes before the fall

One of the things I struggle with the most is pride and self-righteousness. I am very good at believing I know best.

I'm also someone who (I think) looks at situations from lots of peoples points of view and is able to think about how each person would be affected.

And I also get emotional easily.

So when a decision is made which I believe is not right, when a decision leaves out the interests of many people, I get upset.

But how much of my getting upset is me wanting the best for everyone, and how much is me being full of pride and believing I know the best, and feeling hurt because my opinion wasn't considered?
