male pale and stale
it's really hard, and i mean this, being a teacher and a leader. trying to strike the balance between encouragement and censoriousness. when to say, keep going, you're getting there, and when to say that's not good enough.
It totally is.
And don’t get me wrong, because you’re great, but nobody here has asked you to fill that role?
Also I genuinely have no idea if Barty is 23 or not but if he is that’s cool. He still gets it both barrels from me though. He’s a grown up and probably has great skin and hangovers that last 10 minutes. He can take it.
I’m pushing 50 and I’m so glad there were people compassionately knocking blocks off me when I was 23.
