Personally I get the posed nature of most stock photos so I don’t make a judgement about the model’s actual state of mind.
And I didn’t stop caring throughout your piece. I listened. I took it in. And, despite the deal with the devil stock photos might be. I don’t want to contribute to a curtailment of your career. I haven’t, nor will I use your photo.
I know my actions and words won’t be sufficient alone to tilt the needle of your career trajectory. But I hope my words reassure you that some of us listen and care enough to do what little we can.
Much love, many hugs, sister
