    Default I don't give myself airs ; be confortable in my own skin

    Hi,

    What do these expresssions mean? I forgot the context.

    1) I don't give myself airs

    2) be confortable in my own skin

    Thank you !

    The second one means that you fully accept yourself as you are. You feel comfortable with all the imperfections that you may have and don't feel the need to hide any of those things.

    The first one means that you aren't being pretentious, pretending to be something you're not.
