In my work I often encourage my clients to show up and be worthy, to recognize that they have worth just by being, to embrace their talents and to celebrate their achievements. I suggest to them that they should value their uniqueness and amazingness and be saturated in it. This way, when others recognise your worth, it is a bonus; if they never recognise your worth, then it is also okay, because you are recognising your own worth. Most often, the response is something along these lines: "You're saying that I need to know my worth and see myself as amazing? Won't I be arrogant if I do this?
This then leads to the discussion of arrogance versus celebrating the self and self-worth. Arrogance is most often a mask for insecurity and self-doubt. Arrogance is very likely the facade that you are better than what even you think you are. Arrogant people often disregard others in their attempt to appear important/clever/better. Someone who shows up worthy and who celebrates their amazingness, would never need to be arrogant as there it is often a private experience, that is more than likely seen by others, as it is an attitude, a loving one, a confident one, one which indicates that one is happy with oneself,a Ned that one knows one's worth.
So, to all of you out there who feel that you're afraid to celebrate yourselves because you don't want to appear arrogant, trust me, the people who experience you, more than likely know and feel the difference between the two. Arrogance makes most of us feel uncomfortable, whereas confidence makes us want the same for ourselves.
