Thanks for writing this, it’s such a powerful read.
How sad, and fascinating, that a company would see boldness as a negative thing in that way. I’m genuinely really surprised by that. It’s horrible to think of how many people have had their sprit squashed and boldness hushed through experiences like this. It’s such a massive waste of energy, creativity and passion.
It’s inspiring to read that you found your way through it though— thank you very much for sharing this.
