I was recently in a situation where I felt proud of myself for being in, but could not, for the life of me, think of a word for how I was feeling.
I want to give a name to the feeling, not just say I am feeling proud of myself. Like for example: "I feel accomplished", but it didn't quite fit. Basically, I guess you can say I am looking for a different word than proud.
What is the right word for feeling proud of oneself for being in a particular situation?
