Self deprication is powerfully negative. I do it all the time.Sure it’s funny, it sometimes helps in awkward situations, sometimes you don’t even believe what you’re saying. But no matter how you look at it, you are putting yourself down.
I do it all the time. I don’t take compliments well. I don’t celebrate my achievements. I diminish them.
“It wasn’t that big of a deal.”
“Anyone could have done that.”
“It was nothing.”
But it was a big deal. Not just anyone could have done that, you did that. It was something.
If you don’t toot your own horn and accept that you are something special, nobody else will.
Happy 1st of the month!
