Eventually, the solidarity crumbles and groups begin to again turn against each other. Another stopgap solution to conflict is simply avoiding it.

Pride Comes Before the Fall

the standard dictionary definition of overconfidence is summed up in two words: too confident. It may seem comical that it is as simply put as this, but the definition is 100 percent accurate. To be too much of one thing can be destructive to a person, this is because the word “too” in this context means to have an excess of something.
