You have to learn to discern who to listen to..."Strut your stuff girl!"...is actually NOT good advice! Being a show off is very unattractive. Love does not boast...it doesn't try to put itself above other people.
I have been around people that just can't seem to say enough about themselves. They sing their own praises with a fervor. They have a way of sharing with everyone that will listen how great they are and how they are so happy that they don't have to struggle like other people do. Oh my goodness, it makes me not want to be around them. But since I have learned that "love is kind", I continue to "listen" and smile.
Being boastful just pushes people away causing you to eventually become lonely. If you want a full life...make it about others...take care of yourself, but love others. Sow seeds of affirmation into their lives and see how their life changes and your life becomes full and satisfied...always remember...Love Does Not Boast
