Dear Dr. Double Up,
Are you a real doctor? Where did you get your degree?
What is reality? What is real to me, may not be as real to you. By the same token, there are many ways to obtain a degree - my doctoral degree was earned at the School of Life.
So, technically, no - I may not be a "real" doctor in the way some people measure it. But we should never let other people measure our value or self-worth.
