Short answer: Can be.
Social interactions, and the power plays they so often become, are the ultimate balancing act. Our huge frontal lobes are primarily dedicated to doing Just That Kind of calculus, because it is Hard.

In your case, since you clearly miss him, at least on some level, you need to remember Why you broke up, why you are maintaining this artificial aloofness, and ask yourself is your pride worth the hole in your feelings. If it is, carry on. If it isn't, change something.

Having pride isn't bad at all. However, you should be careful not to let it blind you or negatively affect the decisions you make in life. If you really feel it is important to talk to him, then you should go ahead and do so.
