Why embrace it?
Because you're worth it, of course! Besides, a bit of pride is good for your ego, your appearance (the more you love yourself, the better you dress!) and your friends and family: you have to love yourself before you can love others.
Handling your pride
Don't confuse pride with a big ego and avoid superficial gestures. Sending flowers is all well and good, but actually putting some thought into why you're doing it is just as important. Telling your friend how hot she looks in her new dress is worth more than an empty gesture.
