Keeping my head up when everything else around me came crashing down.
It was so worth it.

My 14 yr old son telling his Uncle he is an asshole for offering him a beer and then having the courage to tell me about the episode.

Having the courage to be true to myself in different situations. Hard, but worth it.

No contest, when my son was born & then three years later my daughter. Utterly life changing moment, I melted with pride & yes tears were involved too. I literally told anyone & everyone I bumped into on those days that I was a Daddy. YAY for my kids!!!!!

I’d say I was proud of my parenting, but that job isn’t over, so I can’t say that. I am surely proud of my kids—but that seems like not really answering the question, which I take to be aboiut oneself.

Of course, none of these things are moments. I’m proud of the way I have coped with mental illness. I’m proud of my writing. I guess there are a lot of things I’m proud of, but I can’t say that any single moment comes to mind.

I haven’t stood up on the stage to receive and Oscar. In fact, I’ve never received any award at all. I have never been elected to any office, nor have I ever been singled out for recognition in some ceremony or another. I just don’t know.

I’m proud I influenced some kids in a good way through teaching and music. I’m glad I’ve led my journey and that i’ve been strong to overcome tons of personal adversity.

saving a drowning girls life

Definatly finding the woman of my dreams. Finding someone that I want to actually marry and spend the rest of my life with. I am also proud that I am self sustaining and have a decent job that is relatively secure. Definite blessings in my life. I think the most important thing of all though is having a great relationship with by family. That is truly a blessing

I am most proud of having helped raise five intelligent, reasonably successful, loving, compassionate children who are now raising their children to be the same way. That’s a total of 15 people who will continue to have a very positive impact on this sad old world for many years after I’m gone. Proud? Yes indeed I am! : D

I gave up a ten year long powder and crack cocaine addiction. I have been off the white devil almost four years now. Im sure I would have died an early death or be locked up for a considerable amount of time if I didn’t get stop that destructive path. I still battle addictions to prescription medications though. One day I hope I can be happy without chemicals and the thought of them always on my mind. I am also pretty fucking proud when I do something on my skateboard that I have never did before or something that is just gnarly. I also am proud of the fancy work my dad and I do building and remodeling upscale houses. We have built really nice spiral staircases, very unique mantles, intricate
tile floors, showers, and backsplashes.

GOOD FOR YOU, Buster! Is it ok for me to say that I’m very, very proud of you? : D

filmfann's avatar

Oddly, it might be that I have the respect of those who don’t like me.
They tell others that I am a good and decent person, and that I am quite skilled, but that I am an asshole because I am a self-rightious boy scout.

Bluefreedom's avatar

I’ve served over 20 years in the military, so far, and I’m rather proud of that fact. I don’t know if it is what I’m most proud of but it’s certainly nothing to scoff at.

flitter54's avatar

I am a mommy and now I am a grandma, our children are what we leave when we are gone, nothing is more important than our kids.

CaptainHarley's avatar


Indeed it is not. I salute you. : ))

woodcutter's avatar

being married for 28 yrs to the same chic. And our son got a diploma easily.and hasn’t been arrested he isn’t a druggie and believes in working hard. words cannot express how good this feels from a parent’s point of view. If I were to kick off tomorrow he would be ok, and that’s a good thing. And I have always taken the best care of my animals as I could.

Bluefreedom's avatar

@CaptainHarley. Right back at you, fellow veteran. I salute you too! =)

And thanks @woodcutter and @stranger_in_a_strange_land. =)
