Do "I'm Failing" Stories Make Us More Likeable?

This post by the fabulous Kelle Hampton is EXACTLY what I've been feeling lately. 

As women, self-deprecation is the name of the game, but isn't negativity exhausting?  Why can't I just take a compliment without feeling vain, or praise myself and accomplishments without feeling conceited?

Every time I relate to someones imperfections or play into the "my life feels just as hard as yours" there is a sense of connection, and that is a great feeling.  We all want to feel connected, right?  But can't it be more on the triumphs of our day and less on the strife?

I am filing this in my "work on during this lifetime" box.  Connecting on the positive is easier said than done, but this post is a start!
