You are not that meeting where you felt you sounded stupid.
You are not the tremble in your voice, the anxiety in your stomach, or the self-doubt in your mind.
You are not a badly-graded assignment, or a presentation that went wrong.
You are not the mistake you made, or a negative piece of feedback nor a passive aggressive email.
You are not the jobs you didn’t get, or even the jobs you did.
You are the person who shows up.
You are capable and brave and significant, even when it feels like you’re not.
You, with all of your complexities and intricacies and secrets and hopes are dreams, are enough. More than enough. Wonderful, in fact.
There’s so much more to you than what you do for a living.
