    What is the balance between sharing personal excitement and tact?

    So I just got a 96% on a whopper of a pharmacy test.  I was so excited and happy, but I'm having a hard time reconciling those emotions with my concerns for others' feeling who may not have done as well as they had hoped.  I feel I have a right to be excited and I want to celebrate, but can I (or how can I) really share those feelings while being considerate and respectful of my peers?

    Any advice or experience would be helpful!

    Is there anyone you could share with who didn't take the test? I know it's not the same as someone who really understands what it took to get that kind of score, but that's been my own answer to personal accomplishments. I've learned the hard way that anyone who has similar pursuits to mine -- even including my husband -- tend to resent any accomplishments of someone else rather than be happy for them. And...congrats! I'm certain that took a lot of work smile.
