my problem with self-promotion.
I’m not at all good at it. At the most, I’m not usually comfortable with it.
If I do something, I like to let the action or the thing I made/did speak for itself.
I kinda feel like if I talk too much about how awesome this thing I did is, then it becomes less about the thing and more about me. Like, some sort of hero complex thing, and well, that’s not really my shit.
Like, there has got to be a balance. I’ve never been comfortable with being put on the spot by others, and I feel like I put myself on the spot if I start bragging about stuff.
There’s a happy medium for all of this, right? Like, there’s a way to talk about your accomplishments without overdoing it. There has to be. I haven’t figured it out yet, and I’d like to figure it out sooner than later.
I mean, yeah, I like recognition, but I don’t like the idea of forcing recognition upon my peers.
Like, I dress well, but I don’t like talking about how I dress well. My fashion sense speaks for itself—but there are people who love to brag about their shit, and it seems so brash.
In terms of accomplishing things, I just want to find that medium of being able to talk about it candidly without feeling like a total bag of dicks.
