I have a lot of problems with the English language. But if I had the power to change just one thing, I’d create another word for ‘pride’.
Yes, I’ve heard of a thesaurus—in fact, I even use a thesaurus, big college kid that I am. But we don’t use a lot of the synonyms. We overly rely on the word ‘pride’ itself, and it’s messing with one of the most powerful of human experiences.
