No one likes a bragger, and no one feels good about being one. At the same time if we don’t toot our own horn occasionally, who will?
It’s a delicate balance between being boastful, braggish and conceited to being humble, unpretentious and proud.
Maybe what we need is a “wing(wo)man” – someone that brags about us for us. Or maybe we can toot someone else’s horn for them and be their “wing(wo)man.”
It’s the best way to elevate another to a higher level.
Let us tread easy about bragging but be proud of the space we and others take up today.
