It might be a tricky concept to grasp, but constantly posting about how ugly you are is actually pride. Regardless of whether you think you’re beautiful or not, your focus shouldn’t be on yourself.

The spectrum of pride to humility isn’t from self-love to self-hatred, but rather from self-focus to outward-focus.  True humility is looking realistically at yourself, but only looking at yourself after or in the paths of glorifying God and loving others.
