showing down is the opposite of pride. pride is to think of ones self to be greater than others, where as showing someone down is making them lower than others or you.
to further explain the difference between pride and showing down i give this example: i play better football than anyone. this is pride where as u play worse than any one. is showing down. we tend to concentrate more on pride than showing down to others, i find this quite odd as pride is less these days as compared to snubbing someone to a lower level than equal.
this i write because I’ve seen this more in India now than i have ever have. further more this is generally into the youths aging from 12 to 19. in the one can only completely change oneself.
