We’ve all had them. Those ‘I’m not good enough/strong enough/worthy enough’ feelings.
For me, motherhood seemed to intensify them.
I wanted to be the best mother I could be and so put all my effort into that.
Then I worried I wasn’t a good enough wife. Or good enough at work. Or good enough at anything, quite frankly.
But even when we do feel that we’re particularly good at something, do we shout about it?
I’ve seen lots of discussions online of late calling for women to support each other, to stop the bitching and the belittling and let us talk about our achievements without accusations of having an over inflated ego.
In her post on the subject ‘Confidence Vs Ego‘, Muireann (pronounced Mirren, get it right or she’ll get cross) at Bangs and a Bun states: “Someone mentions an achievement/something they’re proud of – a certain sector of people shout them down for bragging and say how inappropriate that is. People, let’s stop the nonsense”.
So, today a bunch of people are going to shout about their achievements loud and proud.
Some took it more seriously than others!
You’ll also notice how some STILL find it hard to say they are fabulous and opt for words like ‘great’ or ‘rather good’!
