Look around at the response to Natalie's death.
You will also get a response like that, I guarantee it.
Keep in your thoughts - make a pendant or a bracelet or something to remind you, if you have to - that even if it doesn't feel like it right now, people love you and will mourn you if you pass.
The burden you place on others, if it exists, is less than the heaviness of having you gone.
We don't want to have to miss you, I promise. ❤

A senior manager told me, "I don't get it. You're one of our best developers, and we can count on you to help other developers and mentor junior associates, but you aren't passionate about your work and rarely work more than eight hours a day. What would it take to motivate you to contribute more?"

If Futaba's a hikikomori, how come her style is so fucking fly.
Answer me that, huh?
@jennamagius nothing has helped my imposter syndrome like seeing my coworkers' code.
