Let me use an analogy--a favourite of mine. Let us say there is a
two-wheeler  mechanic.
He puts up a board, "I am the best expert in using the monkey wrench.
I fix any problem
in a two-wheeler using nothing but my trusted monkey wrench".

Would you use his services?

Programming languages are tools. It is okay to have favourites. It is
a given that each
language is good in a set of areas. It is also agreed that you can do
better with a
language you know well, than with a language you dont know well, even
for problems
unsuited for your favourite language.

But they are still tools. So develop an expertise in two wheelers not
monkey wrenches.

HTH and all the best
