I know I’m not the first to discover this. I know that there have been loads of other women, minorities & “social climber” who have experienced and reflected on this. But I feel, you have to go through it to truly understand it. It is the fear of arrogance, of becoming someone you never wanted to become, that has always stopped me. But you will never not be in danger of arrogance. It is a constant challenge.
Seeking humbleness & claiming space at the same time – it doesn’t need to be an oxymoron.
PS: I know the thought has been delayed, I wrote it last week but I was traveling so I didn’t have the typewriter with me. And my husband was giving me that look when I asked him if he thinks it’s a good idea to take it with me. :)
I will be traveling this week & the next weeks, too – so I hope I can manage to write the thoughts in advance.
