Proudbarrassed


I like this new word made up by the team of the new web browser Rockmelt that integrates Facebook and other social media.

“We are thinking of inventing a new word that accurately reflects how we feel right now. We’re proud of RockMelt and delighted by the many positive comments we’ve received. But we’re also highly embarrassed that we’re having a few issues and not giving every RockMelt user a fantastic experience. Proud and embarrassed. Proudbarrassed.”

That’s how I feel quite a bit after preaching a sermon or publishing a book (they are all imperfect, but I’m proud at the same time–proudbarrassed).
