Thanks for the nice comments, commenters. Wasn’t expecting it, I just had to give her a shout out somewhere.
Context: she was anxious about her review. I know she is a rock star there and see how hard she works and how good she is.
She put her career on pause when we had kids while I went whole-hog into self-promotional growth mode. I got laid off a few years ago she went back into the pond and has been crushing it but she’s humble and unsure sometimes.
I want her to believe in herself the way I believe in her. I want that for all women and moms and anyone else, to be confident in their abilities regardless of the result or who says what. Now that our careers aren’t lopsided our relationship is better than ever. Fifteen years ago we almost didn’t make it.
Give. Give unconditionally. Our industry often takes.
Don’t be in a contest with your partner about whose life is harder. Be there for them. Say the nice things. Nothing makes me happier than helping and supporting. At work or at home. That’s the honest truth. That’s what it’s taken me years to realize.

She would kill me. She hates social media and self-promotion or sharing personal stuff. Ironic cuz she writes a very active brand social feed and constantly checks engagement

I feel like an impostor and have constant panic attacks.

I worked as a maid, janitor then executive assisant from 2016-2020 making 13 to 52k in 4 years. I eventually quit and spent that time watching free online design courses, put together a portfolio and landed a Sr. Designer role. I got promoted to Lead Designer (2 years later; 190K) and have frequent panic attacks about being "found out". I now lead and manage people when I feel like an absolute fake.
