Unfortunately MOST women also have lots of insecurities around their appearance (there are all kinds of societal reasons we could get into about why, but that’s a topic for another day!), including your team lead who triggered you with those comments. People who are totally confident and comfortable in their own skin don’t feel the need to criticize other people’s appearance.
I’m glad you let this add more fuel to your fire during this week’s Job Search Tuesday! 🙂
