Thank you so much for this! I'm around your age and I haven't been coding as long as you, but it's been long enough that I am frustrated that I don't have much to show for the exact same reasons as you. I've been struggling to articulate this myself and your post was so motivational for me.
Thank you so much for sharing. It's the kick in the butt I needed. This might be the first comment I've lever left on Dev because I'm a chronic lurker - thinking once I get a little more expertise I'll have something worthy to contribute. Deep down I know that's not the case but I needed this reminder.
So awesome to hear this! And the fact that you took a step to put yourself out there and break the pattern of not interacting. I encourage you to post, even if it's just to say hi and introduce yourself to others. I look forward to your post!
