These interactions this week were frustrating because being tested, yet alone threatened and called names is not easy to deal with. I’m proud of my responses to the confrontations because people I care about witnessed my reaction and saw how I choose to be in the world.

To think of pressure in a new context, I can reduce the stress I typically feel when it’s my turn to execute.
