Thank you for sharing this Hilary! Psychological safety is crucial to do great work. I did UX research at Facebook for nearly a year, and I struggled a lot with this. It feels so validating and empowering to read other articles on the same topic! You're doing great work :)

Your vulnerability is so courageous. I was immediately impressed with your opening line. Our struggles do not go away when we stuff them in a closet and pretend they don't exist. Lovely :)
