Honestly speaking, there were many many times when I felt the fear of burning the bridges too. But I had a very good role model. My mom. I worked in the same office with her for 6 months (it’s my dad’s company) and I watched her stood her ground, telling obnoxious customers a sounding no when it’s just not right. I learned so much in those 6 months. After those 6 months, whenever I have to make difficult decisions, I ask myself, “Can you really live with yourself if you do this? What’s the worst that can happen if you burn this bridge?” Most of the time, a little sound at the back of my head just said, “Do you know how vast the world is? Just build another bridge!”
