Here is what I want you to takeaway from this post: you needn't be brave to make open source contributions because bravery is not the absence of fear. Bravery is about acknowledging that fear and deciding that the want to contribute is decidedly more significant than our competence, image, and self-importance. Remember, the worst thing that can happen is for your PR to get rejected because almost no one will criticize you for sharing the product of free labor

I truly love this takeaway! Congratulations on your first contribution to DEV and I'm so glad that I got to interact with you in this milestone 🎉Looking forward to many more interactions 😁
