I Appreciate Kindness

Someone on my team touched my heart this morning.

I responded to an email she sent, telling her to follow-up with another supervisor on something because I would be out all of March. She instant messaged me asking if I had a minute- she does this a lot, no big deal.

Let me preface by saying she can be a little needy, so I cleared some time and told her to come see me. She ends up just wanting to check on me, since I check on her and the rest of my team all the time, and since I said I was going to be out. I feel like I'm constantly depleting myself for others and she turned that around with one gesture. 馃槍

Lovely. And lovely of you to respond in the spirit of the gesture.

@Mamapolo2016 Yes, it softened me a bit. 馃槈 I'm a tough nut to crack.

@mathsman I try my best every day- I'm task-driven and it's challenging for me to tap into the people side of myself but some people need that- obviously sometimes so do I.
