I don’t think you need to go back to “save yourself”, if you were ever given this option. All the hassle and all those tears contributed to your halfway up current status. It may sound like a Stoic piece of opinion, but in my experiences, whenever I looked back at things I did not understand, it all made sense after a while. Free or not, these moments created VALUE for you. And I’m glad you are writing that you MATTER, because so many people don’t realize this. I’m not against doing things for free necessarily (at least for the right people, who treat you with respect), but the amount of time doing it is rather questionable, not the action itself. Thank you for sharing this, Anca:)
