I enjoyed Thai lunch with my friends and former co-workers. It was lovely to see them again. I will miss working with them, bouncing ideas off of them, catching up with each other at the coffee cart. But, at the same time, I feel grateful for the time I did get to spend in their company. I feel blessed by all they taught me, tried to teach me, and that they put up with me for as long as they did.
I feel a sense of closure. That I’m no longer abandoning my friends. That it is okay for me to move on, that it’s okay for me to seek different successes.
