inch by inch

be it authority, respect, status, open relationships, etc.
you have to pay your dues via exposure
to earn (a sense of) entitlement
to give yourself permission to feel at ease in claiming these

and understanding this won’t substitute for the actual process
no understanding substitutes for realization

knowledge quickens but never absolves you from
going through the thick of it

the toughest part is losing face from time to time
which is part of the deal
you have to weather short term losses
to make long term gains
but then:
“the pain is inevitable
suffering is optional”
