At this point in my life, I can definitely say that I am proud of myself. In the past, I've done so many wrong things that I have wished so many times I could go back and fix it all. I was never an A+ student, I tried to be but it never really works out. I'm in my senior year in high school and it looks like things are finally falling into the right places. I've been given opportunities that are within my grasp, new doors has been opened for me and I'm finally walking through them. They say bad habits die hard, well I'm replacing the bad ones with good ones, one habit at a time. I've also never been fit my whole life, I was a big baby when I was born (approx. 10.5 lbs). I've recently started hitting the gym about a year ago and I'm feeling like the top of the world, my world at least hahah. So yeah, I am proud of myself :]

I'm not particularly proud of myself. I was given a lot of gifts in life, but I really haven't taken advantage of them. I am a capable, athletic, and intelligent young man, but I lack any sort of motivation to be a productive member of society and only act as one begrudgingly. Despite my definite pride in my character I am not, at this point in my life, proud of my actions. I hope to improve and change how I look at myself, but as I am of a somewhat melancholy disposition, the outlook is somewhat grim.

No time to be proud or not. Knife on the throat. It's now or never for me. This is all in. Fix things now and possibilities for a decent life in the future or just ''give up'' and push bad feelings away instead of facing them. I face them and myself. No more temporary solutions or fake smiles. Simple and natural values is more than enough. Can't expect an afterlife or something like that. I live now like every second counts.
Life has showed me what it is capable of and I want to preserve and reach out for that. Life can be beautiful and that is what I want!

That is quite a different answer than your first... But hey if you can find the motivation. Good for you.

I guess I'm in between.

When I wake up, I see an entire wall full of awards and achievements. It makes me think: 'I might actually succeed in life.'

But when I look in the mirror, my confidence gets down. Being another color in the western world has never bothered me. I love being Asian and different. But lately, it's been getting to me. I want my confidence back, so I'm trying to look in my mirror with a smile.

Bring it on world. This Asian's got swag

Proud of myself?

I haven't contributed anything to society, I've made tons of mistakes, and i'm mediocre at beast with regard to everything that I do. There's no way that I could be proud of myself. I doubt that I could ever be truly proud of myself.

Of course, I don't hate myself by any means. I live a good life, but not a life to be proud of. That is to say, I wouldn't put it up on a pedestal.

That's just me, though. I think there are plenty of people justified in being proud of their lives. I know many such people (and there are many here, it seems), but I don't count myself among them.

I have motivation but no one to believe me or listen to me or being heard. My dad said to me before he died. When you get 18 you can be heard. Yeah? Not yet and I am 24. Thanks for being alive.

That was to put it on the edge. I am proud of myself or I would put it another way.
I give myself credits and gratitude to the people I met along my road. I am not being selfish to take care of myself.
It is the least thing I can do. Being selfish involves other people and use them for your own efforts. That is NOT what I am doing.
I am trying to show respect and recieves the opposite. On top of that they say I don't give them respect. They twist and turn it so much. I still give them chances and they give me none and just tell me a nobody. I am being too kind. Why I have to see people suffer without doing anything? I even try to help them at times and they just use my kindness. Yeah, I am being stubborn in many ways. Not all of them are negative. You can easily see on my post when I write like this that I live alone. Using the ''I am'' phrase. Of course. I have no other people to talk to. Those ''people'' I can talk to is none. Just my mom understands and believes me. The other wolfs are just putting me in a wolf story. Especially now I actually have changed and still in progress of changing things. They believe I am using my old lifestyle but I am not. I am still working on this new lifestyle but when they tell me that I don't I start to lose faith. If that goes further I might actually go back to my old lifestyle because they are being pessimistic instead of listen to what I have to say. Respect does not exist where I live. I am not going back to my old lifestyle just because people stopped looking!

I think the word proud is wrong to use. Happy would be a better word. Are you happy with yourself and your life?
I asked myself last year before almost going insane. Is this what I want? Die here because I am being too stubborn to try?
No way. I wont let all this good stuff go away and be in vain for nothing.
So I started taking steps and that is where I am right now. Damn it requires a lot of courage.

After all the crap I have been through. YES. I was told I wouldnt live to see 20. After 20 I was told I wouldnt live to see 25 because of my job in the military. I'm still alive and kicking and I have learned alot about life in my short time on earth. Yeah, Im proud of myself. I could be dead or in jail. Instead I'm a college student and I turned out to be a pretty kick ass person.
