Thank you Shannon. I’m getting the traditional “Not Distributed for topics due to volume” notice. On this piece, I kinda lapsed into a little pity party about curation. I knew mention of Medium or curation would prevent it from getting curated and I should have taken it out because the point was about comparing oneself to others. But my heart (and head) told me to put it in any way.
