I can not begin to tell you how often I run into absolutely amazing people doing just incredible things who don’t give themselves enough credit.
STOP THIS SHIT!
You are amazing. You do important work and you do it brilliantly.
Give yourself some credit — and when someone gives you a compliment do yourself a favor and hold your breath, don’t just shrug it off but receive it. Receive it because you deserve it.
Seriously: I know a whole bunch of people on this mailing list. And I know that you are fantastic. Allow yourself to know that. It will make you better people.
