We live in a society where self-deprecation is more accepted than self-appreciation. In fact, it's encouraged in a way, because there is not much of a backlash when it comes to talking down on yourself, I mean if anything you're just inviting others to do the same but the opposite brings out the overly insecure, those that feel the need to humble others and why is that? Confidence offends most people. We're told it's fine to celebrate everyone and everything but ourselves. Talking about your accomplishments is seen as bragging and complimenting yourself is seen as narcissistic? You must wait for others to give them to you instead smh quite backwards if you ask me. Share your stories of success (inspire others) Take pictures, compliment yourself, take it all in and love it. Absolutely!
There have been too many times I've noticed peoples reactions to others bigging themselves up and it's mainly been negative...the usual eye-roll and screw face. It's quite embarrassing to witness, I mean no one likes arrogance but I do believe you should be able to unapologetically love yourself, speak highly of yourself and your accomplishments without being made to feel bad about it.
If you feel the need to humble others it shows you are in need of healing. Their confidence is clearly triggering a wound and instead of spending time and energy on bringing people down, direct it to find ways to raise your self-esteem. If you're struggling with this, think of all the great things you've accomplished big or small and list them out. Make sure you put this list somewhere you can view it daily to serve as a reminder of how much you have accomplished because sometimes we are too future-focused it makes it easy to forget how much we have already achieved.
In 2018 I want to see more people celebrating themselves. Let's normalize it this year and beyond.
I’ve compiled a playlist of feel-good songs which is a great way to start your day. You can use mine or create your own personal playlist just make sure it really raises your vibration.
