I won’t tell you not to be so hard on yourself because that’s who you are as a self critical person.. I don’t think you understand how gracious and self-reflective you are while being embarrassed by praise. Awareness of where we are as people is not a vanity regardless of the feeling of the authentic and complete In our discomfort and our attempts to escape.
Can I ask here why women feel themselves imposers or unable to be authentic when they are obviously themselves without need to have qualifications? What have us men taken from you and what recognition can we genuinely offer as an honest gesture that doesn’t seem condescending?
How are women included and why does that feel like an absurd question?
