I'm really becoming struck, as I interact with others, how big a role our families play in that sort of thing. Did your mother discourage your verbal expression of pride in what you do?

As you've probably noticed, I've never outgrown the childish glee at being clever or adorable or whatever, and am always free with my expression of that. Although I don't recall how they encouraged it, I'm thinking my parents must have in some way.

For whatever reason you find it difficult, I think it's great that you were able to do it! I hope one day you are able to find innocent delight in saying "I'm wonderful, aren't I" and looking to find the amused affirmation in a "parent"'s eyes.
