I’m glad you have a sense of humor — I didn’t mean it too seriously. It definitely read that way but context is not always visible in writing, and your broader point was still relevant.
Though I will challenge what you’ve done, not to diminish your accomplishments but to ask what do they really mean? You know we’re all going to end up in the same place, right? Don’t work too hard to validate yourself with praise from others, material goods, etc. Just my two cents, not that they matter.
