Be ridiculously proud of your fucking amazing self

I was playing a game of League of Legends a few days ago with some friends. Basically, it’s a team game where people had to cooperate to take down the other team with your own heroes.

But we ended up cursing and swearing at a team member for being useless. A lot of funny shit were said.

After the match, this conversation ensued:

Me: Haha man, that was some funny shit you said just now.

Annoying Friend: Dude, when I am pissed, I come up with the funniest shit!

Me: … Can’t you reply Haha or LOL like a normal person?

This kind of reminds me of how when you compliment someone of say, the way they look, they’re like, “Nah man, just having a good hair day blah blah blah” and I’m like thinking, “Geez, just ACCEPT the compliment and shut the fuck up”.

You see, I was wondering why Annoying Friend had to be so annoying that way, like he has to be so high and mighty over some joke he created.

Then it hit me…

Annoying Friend wasn’t just trying to fish for compliments (maybe he was), but he was being ridiculously proud of the shit he does!

And if you ask me…

… That’s fucking awesome.

You ought to be ridiculously proud of who you are and what you do, down to the littlest!

Normally people would tell you to just take pride in yourself and whatever you do. They tell you’re special and you don’t need to hide your true-self.

All that jazz.

But I say, be fucking ridiculously proud of who you are and every small little thing you do in life.

Are you sick of hearing that yet? I hope not cause you’re going to hear more of it.

Be ridiculously proud because:

You are actually seriously amazing just by being yourself. No one else other than yourself can understand that. If someone else isn’t happy about that, fuck them. No one can understand your years of experience and memories to create the feelings and way of thinking which you have today.

That being said, you definitely have your own weird little shit and idiosyncrasies.

Does that make you flawed, or special? I say special.

Now, you can either hide behind a mask, afraid that people would laugh at you for being different or still doing weird high-school crap for kids, or you can stand strong, and be ridiculously proud of it! 

Because it’s who you are and what you represent.

That’s me at the training grounds before breaking.

I love laying down and chilling. Posing for stupid pictures. Then uploading it on Facebook in hopes of getting a few comments and likes.

I was also whining a shit load then because I was nursing a bad flu when the picture was taken.

Stupid? Immature? Too much free time?

Whatever, I feel great.

Because I was and am ridiculously proud of being Alden Tan the Bboy. 

And I am writing this shit down to you like it is.

Start being ridiculously proud of every single ounce, detail, element of yourself…

… and the random shit you do.

Because if you aren’t, who else will be?

“Born poor, but of honored and humble people, I am particularly proud to die poor.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Pope John XXIII

So go forth. Take pride in the little things you do, like the stupid joke you made up but only you seem to laugh, that cool picture of yourself you took, the number of Likes you got, the fact that you can down a can of beer in 5 seconds, the number of Xbox Live achievements you have, the poem you wrote, your choice of music. The list goes on.

Life’s too short to not be proud of who you are anyway.
