What are you proud of in your life?
Digging up IED's with my finger tips in baking heat, and keeping a smile on my face while doing it.
This is a funny one and I must be emotionally stunted (can someone explain what that actually means?).
A few years ago I was doing an MSc in Project Management through work and one of the lecturers went round the room asking what we were proud of. I said there was nothing in my life that I felt proud of as such (this was pre-kids, but saying your proud of your kids is cheating!) and the lecturer gave me a right emotional kicking saying I need to look at myself, etc. and stuff that I've forgotten now as his opening line just knocked me for 6.
As a kid pride was something frowned on and ugly, but as an adult I can see there is a difference between pride and showing off or delusion, but it's still difficult for me to think of anything I'm proud of that I may have done. I'm sure I've got lots to be proud of, but I never see it in that way.
