I am touched my T’s concern. That friendly gesture of friendship and concern warms my heart. There is something very reassuring about meeting someone you know for a decade and work with for 7 years. His comment that given my character, if whatever happened in the past one month leads me to my decision, then, it must have been bad, delivered matter of factly, helps to rid the web of self doubts in my head. Guess, this is also due in a large part to the fact that I have always known him to be a logical and objective person. I am not sure why but there is something about meeting someone that I know for a really long time and trust that makes me feel very grounded. And of course, given my recent stage of mind, it has helped in instilling my fundamental trust of people around.
