Writing this piece took a tremendous amount of courage since you seek social acceptance (I’m an approval junkie as well). Fighting the well-worn behavior patterns you’ve built over time is incredibly difficult. Naming and owning it is a huge part of the healing process. You achieve that and so much more with this piece. Thanks for sharing.

I’m passionate about personal and professional leadership. I write about lessons learned from managing teams (and myself) for 20+ years.
