For example, the sentence I am not ashamed of my past. Indifferent to sounds too passive, proud of sounds too strong. Any ideas?

  • In what sense are you intending to use this word? Are you proud because you've diligently striven to lead a good life, confident because you know of no shameful events, or defiant because you vehemently disagree with others who think you should be ashamed? – Michael J. Jun 15 '18 at 16:46

If you are "not ashamed" of your past, would you be unashamed? This word minimizes other possible connotations of your sentence.

Merriam Webster: Definition of unashamed : not ashamed : being without guilt, self-consciousness, or doubt

Dictionary.com: not ashamed; not restrained by embarrassment or consciousness of moral guilt
