Hiding achievements out of a fear of ‘not being liked’

Hiding achievements because we believe we ‘won’t being liked’

Hiding achievements because of what happened at school!

Sharing your achievements is not showing off.

  • There is a big difference between being an obnoxious ‘show off’ and simply celebrating a well deserved achievement.
  • If they have a problem with my achievement — it is their problem! They have a wobbly self-esteem thing going on — be compassionate but stay in the driving seat!
  • I don’t just share my achievements — I share my ‘mess ups and muddles’.
