English term or phrase: even if I say so myself
I also wanted to write about the encounter with the nasty python, and how I’d been ever so relieved that I had escaped from becoming a snack for a slithery snake.
Shudderrrrr!
I thought I had handled myself pretty well, even if I say so myself.

这里是不是说,即使很害怕,但是我觉得自己的自控能力还是很强的意思?

Chinese translation:话虽如此/怕归怕
Explanation:
根据链接中的字典,handle oneself 就是 behave 的意思。
even if I say so myself 直译是“话虽如此”,但你的理解没有错,so也就是前句,说自己害怕到直哆嗦。意译就可以变成:

怕归怕,我觉得自己表现得挺不错。
