I've done it now - committed myself to walking through the doorway that appears to be open. I won't know for a few days yet if I've made it through or if I'll bump my head against the transparent door. Regardless of what happens, things at work will never be the same…I'll know clearly who stands with me and who is against me. I don't believe there is a middle ground: you either give me the opportunity to succeed or fail on my own, or tell me that you don't believe in me and never give me the chance to try.
