Do you feel proud of your diplomas and degrees from school? Proud of accomplishments in general?
When I graduated high school and college I didn’t have a feeling of success that I think some people have. When I met my husband I didn’t even know if I had a copy of my college diploma with me, while he had his all framed and hanging on a wall. As I get older I have more of an appreciation for accomplishments. I kind of grew up with an absence of pride, I never used that word or heard my family use it. Recently I felt pride in something I did, and it makes me think if I had experienced this feeling younger I would have been more ambitious.
I’m interested to hear your thoughts about how you think of these sorts of accomplishments and pride in doing something. It doesn’t have to be related to education, it can be anything.
