I read somewhere that writers have large egos. After all, it takes a good size ego to decide to write something that you know thousands of people will not only want to read, but spend good money to read it. Pride is something I've always struggled with. I seem to go either completely prideful and think that I'm so wonderful, or I become self- deprecating and think that I'm lower than dirt. There's got to be a happy medium. There's got to be a way to excel at my talents and not be prideful or self-deprecating.
About a year ago I came across this quote by President Ezra Taft Benson:
"Pride is concerned with WHO is right; Humility is concerned with WHAT is right."
