I struggle with the same thing.

I was repeatedly told as a young girl not to let it go to my head. Then it was added that I might soon not fit through the doorway with such a big head.

I learned the lesson. To advocate and be proud of my accomplishments was unacceptable. That made me.

This even was connected to my health. To ask for medical attention was seen as inappropriate. Now I’m horrified yet it so hard to combat.

Now I struggle to self promote and market. To fight for my rightful space in the world. Instead I hope someone will notice. But it doesn’t work thar way. To become successful, I will need to promote myself. Ugh.

So let’s do this together. Hold each other accountable. Ok? Maybe then we can find the room in the world that already belongs to us.
