An excellent summary of why providing help with language like "just" or "simply" can be demeaning, rather than helpful:
“Just” makes me feel like an idiot. “Just” presumes I come from a specific background, studied certain courses in university, am fluent in certain technologies, and have read all the right books, articles, and resources. “Just” is a dangerous word.
It also contains this absolute gem of a far-too-relatable quote 😂
Now there’s a damn good chance I’m actually an idiot, but the self-respecting part of me wants to challenge that notion.
