Has there ever been a time where you had to prove yourself? Why? To whom?

Before I begin spilling my life secrets and hidden traumas, I need to make sure that you're recording this.

I'm keeping every post in here recorded in multiple offsite databases, just in case someone begins to side with YYW during an argument.

Ya at work every day. I have to prove I am worth being paid for my work by employer.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

As basic-b*tch as this is going to sound, the most "okay, gotta prove myself here" I get is right before hitting PR's in the gym or right before a big lift in a competition.

Nothing else in life feels as "I've got to give it all I've got!" as these moments.
If you're reading this, you're awesome and you should feel awesome.

I would say yes, specifically on interviews and at work. You have to prove your competence and that you add (somehow monetary) value.

I don't think you should have to "prove yourself" to a partner, but it's interesting that quickly came to mind.

I used to in cross country, but I don't do it as much anymore.

Now, I do it a lot in osu multiplayers when I'm playing with someone higher ranked than I am. I'm not very good during multiplayer games for some reason, but I've also gotten some of my highest combos in multiplayers (I was in 2nd place with someone in 1st with a previous combo of about 680. I made myself get up to a combo of 847 just so I could beat him). Does that count?
