Knowing your own limitations and accepting them is probably the biggest challenge. We all want to do good right away. Facing your lack of knowledge on a particular subject is difficult enough, asking for help can be tough for some people. When I started, I used to tell myself that I didn't belong there, thanks to the good old imposter syndrome. Having a mentor or a colleague reassuring yourself that you are just where you are supposed to be right now helps tremendously.

Damien, it's great to hear that you have someone to support you on that journey. Almost everyone I know went though some of these situations and that's why I'd like that we as a community discuss it more, to show others they're not alone :)
