    Hey there again!

    I wonder if there is a greek version of this expression or something in the same sense, "to praise oneself for sth".

    Cheers!

    According to Magenta dictionary:
    pat on the back = χτυπάω φιλικά στην πλάτη

    Can't think of anything idiomatic at the moment but on a literal level one could use "αυτοεπαινείται/επαινεί τον εαυτό του".
