You’ve just climbed one heck of a mountain, and you deserve a big pat on the back for rising to the challenge. Just make sure that pat is delivered by someone else’s hand, though. Being too quick to boast about your achievement could make people think that you only did it for the bragging rights, and that cheapens it. You have to be content with your pride in yourself. The applause from other people (that is sure to come) should just be icing on the cake.
