re: Gosh, this is basically how I feel. I don't have nearly as much experience, but I am extremely confident in the skills I do have. My passion is HTM...

As José Muñoz said above: "It doesn't matter what language or framework you use, once you know how you want your data to flow through your application you can implement it however you like."

Given their name, developers should be able to develop. But developing is only dependent on knowing a way to develop, not necessarily developing using a specific framework like React, or even a specific language like JavaScript. Not unless you want to be a JavaScript and React developer.

If you feel like you want to improve as a developer, then work on improving yourself as a developer.

If you feel like there is a trend towards using React, instead of experiencing it as a trapping feeling, go with the flow and at least try to understand what all the fuss is about. You do not have to learn anything you do not want to. Development is in and of itself method agnostic. Do it how you want.
