Hold out for someone who is human and complicated and insecure at times, but who is always working on it. Yes, he will undoubtedly in weak moments be threatened by your superior competence, but overall he should be far more interested in celebrating your success.

Oh man, I wish I could give up ‪#‎anxiety‬ like Paul Ryan OR maybe I just need to educate him on what anxiety really is.

What are you giving up for Lent? I'm giving up respect for Speaker Paul Ryan.
