  1. The loneliness of proud people is often not permanent, but periodically occurring. And it is usually associated with the characteristics of pride, namely:

    • With the “I'm always right”attitude

    • with a patronizing attitude towards other people, as if looking down on them

    • belittling the virtues and achievements of others

    • and with building a special kind of relationship, in which the proud person plays the role of a “Critical parent”, and the partner is offered the role of a “Guilty child”

    Most people, faced with such characteristics of a proud person, seek to protect themselves and either leave such relationships or defend their interests.

    However, the image of a successful, strong, purposeful and proud person is often attractive, and therefore such a person rarely remains alone for a long time.

    As a result of regular filtering, mostly people remain in his environment who are ready to adapt to his whims and sacrifice their self-esteem at the same time. Such people also exist in large numbers in our society.

    Therefore, proud people are rarely left alone in the end.

  2. Pride is a feeling of joy for personal success.

    A person who feels a sense of pride is rarely alone.

    Perhaps your question is about “pride”?

    Pride is not in vain ranked among the deadly sins. It has nothing to do with the feeling of joy.

    Pride is self-exaltation above others, and its companions are anger and resentment. It looks like pride only with a “-” ( minus) sign.

    Most often they are left alone if such a person:

    • reserved and uncommunicative

    • has a psychological trauma associated with the subject of pride

    • experiencing pressure from the environment.

    Such people really become lonely. Few people want to communicate with a person who is silent and resents others.

  3. This question itself arose from a misunderstanding of the difference between pride and hubris. Pride is inherent in people who are attentive and respect the dignity of other people. So they can't be alone. But the owners of pride, remain alone because of their selfishness.

    They themselves need other people only as spectators.

  4. If Pride is Pride, then it is a direct selection, separation of ONESELF from others.

    If pride is a sense of individuality, then it can be with people, and maybe without people, if a person in his development rises above the average person, and there are sooooo few people like him, and he simply has no one to adequately communicate without any negativism towards people.

  5. Pride is a denial of the fact that someone needs him as a person without his achievements, so without them he cannot be happy with others.

    Denial is his own lie, which he also believes.

    Lying is a trick.

    Cunning leads to loneliness.

    Loneliness wants the cunning one to “die”.

  6. And who needs them like this? Being proud of yourself is stupid. It only makes sense to be proud of your actions. And actions tend to become the past. It is impossible to perform only those actions that you can be proud of all the time. Life forces anyone to compromise, except perhaps the Lord God, if you believe in him, and even that, in Christianity, personified compromise. So pride is not only a sin, but also a common folly. But it is often confused with self-love (which is even worse), or self-esteem (which is quite another matter).

  7. I think that there is a mistake in the concept.

    Proud people are lonely. Those who are hurt by pride, painful conceit. It is difficult for them to enter into relationships.

    And proud people who feel joy from their success and achievements for the benefit of society-they do not sit alone, they need to share the joy of their achievements.

    There was just a story on this topic.

  8. I don't know, I haven't noticed this before. I've never given up on my principles, and I've never been lonely.
    Yes, I did not allow myself to be humiliated, no one dared to wipe their feet on me, with those who tried to do this, I myself broke off relations.
    But there were those who respected my rules and respected me. No, I wasn't a leader, and I didn't strive for it, but for some reason people were drawn to me. Sometimes it was hard, but I was never alone.
    Lonely people are not proud, but selfish and angry people.

  9. The question is really deeply philosophical. But it is interesting to reflect on it.

    Pride and pride are two concepts that have great similarities, but still differ in one critical meaning.

    A person experiencing pride feels superior to others, considering himself superior to others. It sends both verbal and non-verbal signals. People can feel it. No one is ready to put themselves in a deliberately humiliated position.

    Pride is another matter. In this case, a person puts above all, and often above himself, his principles, views and codes. They are his “guiding star”. And compliance with these principles is a matter of honor. And, since not everyone shares the principles (views/codes) of such a person, he selectively approaches the question of who he should share his life with.

    And here the main question arises – why did someone decide that such a person is experiencing loneliness?

    Why doesn't it feel like a person is happy in a life where they follow their own ideals? And is in search of someone or others who will share his life views?

    Yes, of course, if this turns into seclusion, social phobia, or gradually transforms into pride, then this becomes a problem. But as long as a person lives in accordance with his principles, which are part of his personality, it is not necessary to draw such categorical conclusions about his loneliness.

  10. Narcissists are more likely to be lonely than proud ones. A proud person knows his own worth and can give in when he understands that he is wrong or that stubbornness will damage his relationships with loved ones.
