This reminds me of someone else’s work — how people only see you as an end result, but they don’t see the process of how you’ve gotten there.
And it’s usually the journey (the struggles, the emotions, the failures & the successes) that shapes who you become. Not what you’ve achieved at the final step. People respect you more on what you’ve done vs the title you’ve gained.
Very insightful piece, Candra Adia! You really have a way of expressing your thoughts. :)
