I cried today…and it was hard. But tears are healing and I needed it.
I am struggling with a few things on the team. But I’m learning to listen to the entire pitch from my team mates before diving in with answers or to disagree. This is not my strong suit as I like to fix fix fix. But these are smart people who need to know I hear them. So despite the fact that my face betrays me, I’ve learned to say “I know I look concerned…I am…but keep talking. I want to hear you! I promise I’m listening.” And they appreciate it.
Today was all about long breaths. Stopping to take them. Making myself. And surviving. I survived. And I’m still breathing.
