Hi,

Please check out the following sentences.

(1) I didn't pay cash. Instead, I pay by credit card.

(2) On one hand, O am too busy. On the other hand, you have to learn not to be dependent on others.

(3) He is very considerate. By contrast, his twin brother is very conceited / proud.

(1) I didn't pay cash. Instead, I paid by credit card.

(2) On the one hand, I am too busy. On the other hand, you have to learn not to be dependent on others.

It would be better if each of these sentences involved more of 'an opposite',

eg On the one hand, I am too busy. On the other hand, I really want to help you.

(3) He is very considerate. By contrast, his twin brother is very conceited / proud.

I'm not sure that 'conceited' or 'proud' are strong contrasts to 'considerate'.

In addition, being 'proud' is not necessarily a bad thing. Perhaps he has a lot to be proud of. Have a look at the more negative word 'haughty'.
