It’s that initial rush when everything is so new and you’re just thrilled to be there and get involved and then be recognized. Eventually, having been around awhile you notice people are quite what they seem and disillusion sets in. You begin to question why no one else can see this stuff. I’ve had the same experiences on LinkedIn and now seeking solace here. It doesnt appear to be as back biting … but then it’s all new for me. I hope my joy here will be long lived.
