Are you proud of yourself?
How often and easily do we gush with pride over our kids, our friends, our dog, etc. Just like me in this photo with my youngest son Haydn. I’m so incredibly proud of him and I tell him on a regular basis.
Yet, how many times when it comes to ourselves are we often mute on the subject.
You see, everyone has something to be proud of but it seems like we’re afraid to allow ourselves that pat on the back. I know I’ve been guilty of this that I’ll be seen as boastful.
However, this is nonsense. It’s ok to be proud of yourself!
You see, if you’re constantly giving off an impression that you’re nothing special and you don’t deserve to be loved, happy, healthy, then people are going to treat you that way. Being proud of yourself is an essential part of your happiness. Outside of the fact that sometimes you simply rock, pride signals to others that you and/or what you’ve done matters. We are only treated as we treat ourselves.
So, be proud of yourself! You are a powerful force in the universe. Believe in your greatness, and be proud of who you are!
