It has been an odd morning. I received two reminders of what now feels like a past life. First I was proud of my emotional regulation when hearing a song that a formerly close friend recommended to me years ago. Still reminds me of that friendship and its befuddling end but doesn’t bother me at all like it used to. When I got into work, a LinkedIn nag was waiting in my inbox from a professional acquaintance through my last job. Another reminder of some of the most emotionally difficult work I did back then. My only reaction today was amusement.
