Yes, but honesty is the hard part because I have to be honest with myself, first, about what I really have to offer and what I may reasonably expect.
Letting others decide for themselves is the key, of course, but I shouldn't be surprised or outraged or hurt or offended if no one chooses to accept what I have to offer.
