Hi Michaela!

Thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed response. It always means a lot and definitely helps me become a more thoughtful writer. I didn’t mean to imply that Beth is 100% easygoing all the time but perhaps that she is easygoing more often than not. I don’t think that not having Beth’s qualities make you inferior in any way. I’m sure you have lots to offer and bring other things to the table in ways that Beth does not. I would love to discuss how I should phrase things differently so as to be more hopeful for the reader rather than create discomfort in them. I would also love to hear more about you as a person. I feel like there is a story in there! Write to me at maeyalily@gmail.com if you would like to get in touch :)
