Please Don’t Apologize for Existing

Written By: Lauren Howard

You don't have to be nervous about messaging me.

You don't have to apologize for taking up my time.

You don't have to worry that you're bothering me.

My DMs are always open to people who have questions, want to give feedback, or just want to say hi.

Please don't apologize for existing.

You are allowed and encouraged to take up space.

I will not laugh at your request for virtual coffee. I will not roll my eyes because you're new here. I will not be bothered by the 15 seconds it takes to read your message.

I will welcome you because people welcomed me when I started here.

Just don't ask me if I want to learn crypto. That's a hard no.

And connect and pitch is kind of lame.

But connect and . . . connect?

Here for it.

Say hi in the comments or in my DM box.
