I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2016 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's. Today's word is "B".
My theme is “Human Characteristics”. Today I chose “Boastful”.
Budding player, putting in hard hours, to excel at any cost, demeaned at every opportunity, by the coach not fond of her.
Neither you possess forehand of Supriya nor backhand like Taniya. Sharapovas and Williams of the academy, the ones you should boast of, shouldn’t you?
Thyself I am boastful of, pat came her reply.
Being boastful about one’s own self isn’t always necessarily being arrogant. Loving yourself even with your shortcomings is the most important thing in life. As RasheedOgunlaru says “There's no alternative to being yourself. Accept it, honour it, value it - and get on with it.”
