One woman pointed out that bragging is really a way of honoring our own spirits and who we really are. She noted that we do endless self-bashing along the lines of "I should be this and I shouldn't do that," or "Oh, no, I just go to the top of the publishing world because I happen, well, to be lucky." Instead, for her, bragging has become a way to revel in all the wonderful things she has accomplished.
To see bragging in this way, we have to start by wiping the slate clean and dropping our preconceived notions.
