You should feel good about yourself because of your accomplishments. Not because somebody yelled at you to feel good about yourself.

I have been measured on my merit and on my accomplishments.
For me, I find that even though I've accomplished a few things in my life, looking back on accomplishments doesn't give me a sense of satisfaction.
