This is an angry rant:
I've been seeing a lot of "I was lucky enough to have worked with so and so on project X..."
Let me tell you something.
You were NOT lucky enough to have worked with so and so.
You effing EARNED it.
Stop making yourself look less professional than you are, or less skilled, and promote yourself with a simple "I worked with so and so on project X...."
No one is going to look at you like you're bragging. You're stating a simple fact. You really did work with so and so on that project.
Because when you're lucky enough to have worked with so and so on project x, you sound out of your league.
And I get it, you probably DO feel lucky! And you want to seem modest, you want to seem humble, but how long have you been working at this? How long have you been forgoing luxuries so you can answer what you've been called to do in this life? How long have you been working so hard, and finally, finally, you're at a level where you're working with people of the same caliber as you? And now you're starting to make money at this - decent money!
OWN your talent. OWN your magic. OWN your hard work that is paying off.
YOU ARE WORTH IT.
Whew! Angry rant over!
I feel so much better!
