I've also grappled with similar situations and I guess what's missing for me here is how you've grown and changed as a result of this whole ordeal or what you could have done better.

I hear you. But I specifically decided that the Tales From The Dev Side series would be just that - tales. Not lessons. Or best practices. Just... tales. And I totally get that won't appeal to everyone.

All my other "normal" articles are basically extensions of my real-life experiences, with additional information about how I've changed, or what I've learned. As for this particular story, there are, quite literally, about a half dozen different takeaways (for me), and I didn't wanna make it even longer by adding a whole bunch of preachy "what have we learned today?" findings.

I just wanted to tell the story. I'll do others like that in the future. Just telling that story - and letting the readers draw what they will from it.

I didn't mean in a preachy way but in a "in good storytelling the main character (you) usually grows and changes" way.
It is your story though and you can tell it however you like. I fully respect that.
