You struggled so much there...within the parameters of a 9-5 (although you worked much longer hours than that) job. You felt so out of place, like you were pretending. I've been there too.
But you still gave your best- working during busy seasons through the night, making sure everything would go smoothly and quietly supporting everyone else.
Still, I doubted you. I thought like you, that you were not meant for that environment and perhaps made mistakes or worked slowly. I am so very sorry Daniel that I doubted you.
When this VP spoke to me I shared that with her- that you gave it your very best even though you felt so incompetent. She smiled and told me this: "It was exactly the opposite. He was brilliant."
