June 10, San Francisco, CA: I had a formal feedback session at work today, and one of the things my manager prasied me for was my ability to consider situations from other people's perspectives. I guess I was a little shocked. The reason is that I think I am used to hearing that that is one of the areas that I need to work on in my personal life. I have been carrying around that feedback from my last relationship in what now feels like...a not-so-positive way. I can be and have been selfish. Very much so at times. But when I think back on my professional experience, I do agree with her. Its interesting that I really didnt consider myself good at it at all purely based on one part of my life. I'm not really sure of everything I'd like to take away from all this, but if nothing else, I would like to be more consistent across my work and personal lives.
