People Confess The Silliest Thing They're Strangely Proud Of

Knowable

Just because something seems silly doesn't mean it isn't something to be proud of. Some silly or seemingly inconsequential abilities and accomplishments actually take quite a bit of work and skill.

Other times things that you might think are silly are actually things that others would find admirable or remarkable!


Reddit user u/pancake_sass asked:

"What is something little or silly that you would say you're "strangely proud" of?"

It's silly. I'm a 35 year old man, but I'm proud that I can blow a bubblegum bubble this big and bigger even.

I cleared out my closet, obsessive compulsive disorder and hoarding issues run rampant in my family, and I have a bad tendency as well. so finally cleaning it up and throwing out like 14 bags of stuff was very rewarding feeling.

I got my first Reddit award yesterday and then got a second in the same day. I don't know why I care, but I found myself telling my wife as if she gives a rat's @ss.

I've got a freakishly good sense of direction, and can frequently navigate off instinct if I've spent any time at all in the area. Really useful when traveling.

I'm proud of being able to say I'm almost 100lbs. It's such a low weight anyway but I've worked hard to get here. I used to have such bad anxiety that prevented me from eating and lost so much weight. I'm slowly rebuilding and I am really proud of myself.

I have about a 95% success rate in giving my "teacher look" to kids in public to make them just stop. I've also realized this a couple months ago, and a lot of times it makes standing in lines with kids a better experience.

My last dental cleaning was the first I had had in 4 years. My teeth were in such good shape that when I told the dentist that, he had his assistant come in and guess when my last cleaning was. She said they looked like it was 6-8 months ago, but did acknowledge that it had to be longer if he was asking her to guess. I'm very proud of that.

I'd say I'm proud of my intuition. I never do anything risky or out of the ordinary unless my intuition tells me so and until now it never was wrong

I have "involuntary" reflexes...

like if I'm not paying attention and a cup would fall I would catch everytime it but if I was expecting it to happen or focus on it I can't...

I caught all the fishes and bugs in the original Animal Crossing, got all the special kinds of furniture, paid off all my debt and got a golden statue, filled out the museum... I basically completed that game 100%.

Picture the most fun thing you could ever imagine doing.

Maybe it's an enviable career path that has always felt inaccessible. Or perhaps it's some kind of social activity that feels more elite than you'll ever be.
