Some times it is just hard. Damn hard.
You have to be conscious of everything you say. Who you say it too, how it is said; context, and timing.
Sometimes it just doesn’t feel like its worth it. Other times it can falsely inflate your self worth and ego. Then there are times where you know it is all fine. You have put your best foot forward, you have contributed, you have to lead, and you have have been doing work that is valuable.
And then some days you just want to get up and walk away from it all.
