Women Posting your Wins

Why you should not post about your win

This is not going to be an exhaustive list of why you should not share your wins. Which ones would you add to the list?

  1. Bad intention: You only want to brag about it, show off how good you are. Your intention is sinister: You want to make other people feel jealous. F*** off if this is you. Not sure what other people have done to you, that you feel you need to make other people feel shit.
  2. Pure luck: You did nothing to achieve it. For example you won in the social class lottery. The one where you are lucky to be born into the right family, at the right time and place. Good for you. Enjoy it. But that is not an achievement. That’s being lucky.
  3. Secret: You are a spy and it is a top secret mission.

Why you should post your win

Again, the list is not exhaustive. Let me know which ones I should add to the list.

  1. Celebrating together: You are happy and want to share the happiness with others. Celebrating alone isn’t fun.
  2. Visibility: You want to show the world that people like you can achieve these things. This is not about making others feel jealous, but about motivating those that have a similar background to you. It’s about telling them: Yes, you can also do it.
  3. Gratitude: You are grateful for the help you have received from others and what to thank them publicly.
