Thanks Nicole Akers for the shout-out. I think the biggest takeaway from living abroad (and something I still struggle with) is realizing friend, mom, dad, brother etc are much cooler titles than any work title. I’m happier when life reminds me of this, but still put work first way to often even though I know if I’m good to the people around me work seems to take care of itself.
