… day, I sat down and wrote 2,400 words. I aimed for high readability and easily relatable examples. The hardest part was hitting the submit button when it was time to publish. I knew publishing this piece was going to be a moment of truth for me. Could I share my thoughts, my ideas, and my interpretation of the facts with strangers on the internet, or was I too scared of what criticism I would face? If I couldn’t publish, I needed a new career path. If I could, I lived to fight another day.
