The point of Putting Yourself Out There

Can I really do this? Will I fail? Am I good enough? What will other people think? Will I add value? Will I really make a difference? What if I’m delusional? Who do I think I am? That was some of the thoughts that ran through my head this Tuesday. I’ve been a lecturer in […]

Acceptance
