We only feel pride because of our instinct - that we are responsible for our actions. I feel it less and less these days as it becomes habitual to deny responsibility - I'm getting trained out of feeling guilt and pride. Not sure if it's a good thing or not for my mental health but it seems inevitable, sure as 1+1=2.
I still get a rush out of doing good things, things which have good consequences, so I can still get a buzz.
