Screw everybody, I am awesome

So today I wanted to talk about an important topic. I saw this somewhere on the internet, maybe on Instagram, I can‘t remember, but I know, that the idea is still with me, so I thought I would write about it.

In this post, somebody was bragging. He/she told us, what is great about him/her and encouraged us to do the same.

But what is so important about this, that I even write about it?

There is a common view that you should always be humble. You shouldn‘t state what you are good at, you shouldn‘t brag but still, you have to be confident enough and appear as a strong personality. For me, that‘s a fine line. So most of the time I am more humble than I should be, it is just easier. Nobody shames you if you are too humble, but everybody does if you just cross the line a little.

But once in a while it is a nice feeling to brag a little. You don‘t have to brag to friends or family, just brag to yourself. About yourself. For yourself.

It is as if you would give yourself a pep talk. It can help, if you are feeling a bit down about yourself and maybe think a too little of yourself. But also, it is a great feeling to say: „well, fuck everybody, I am awesome!“. It also helps with listening to yourself more and not letting other people‘s opinions get to you so much.

So today, I urge you to brag.

Please, do it in the comments, if you feel comfortable doing that! Tell me, what is that you are proud about yourself, what do you like about yourself, what is, that you can do very well? I want to know!

Now, I am going to start. You don‘t know, how hard it is for me, everybody was always telling me to be extremely humble and I had to be silent when I was proud of myself. So here it is:

I am awesome. When I was 15, I moved to a foreign country  and I was doing really great in school. I am building websites and blogs and creating design since I am 13 and I taught myself all of it. I am creative and I learned how to do calligraphy in a very short time. Also, I can cook and bake pretty well and improvise in the kitchen. I went vegan overnight and never looked back. I am great at learning languages and I learn them very fast. So screw everybody that thinks I am not cool 🙂

Now I want to read yours! Don‘t let me alone in this, let‘s brag together 🙂 It feels nice, I promise.

  • It’s true, people love to judge right away, which is why people prefer to sink back and rather not tell anyone about what they are passionate about.

    I admire how you can make websites! I can tell you are a creative person. Keep up at it! Also, it’s great that you can learn languages easily. It’s one of my goals to learn lots of languages; if only I wasn’t so lazy about it. And!! Calligraphy! I’ve been putting off attending workshops, so I haven’t tried it out yet, though I really love seeing playful calligraphy. I can only rely on downloaded fonts for now.

    Hmm things to brag about myself? I guess it would be that I play the flute, I enjoy hosting and being in front of a large crowd, and I love volunteering for good causes. 🙂 Thanks for posting, Rebeka!!

    • Hi Anna! Nice to see you here again!

      I thought it was important to write this blog post, because anyone can use a little confidence boost sometimes and it is nice to brag a little to change things up a little and see yourself in a new light.

      I admire how YOU make websites, haha 🙂 I am also too lazy to learn languages, but the great thing is, I don’t even have to do much, it just comes to me. I also don’t attend any calligraphy workshops, but I like to teach myself stuff, so I am okay with that 🙂

      I learned how to play the flute when I was in elementary school, hahaha so funny! I forgot everything though. It is so nice to see that there are still people who volunteer for good causes and make the world a better place. I definitely should get into doing that! Thank you for doing that!

      And also thank you for your comment 🙂
