Great personal story Michael. I’ve run into this a million times at work: people who matter not at all in the long scheme of things affecting me negatively. They’ve criticized me, pointed out my differences, shunned me, and fired me. But they’re genuinely missing out on the best parts of me, because they don’t care about me. They do so little for me, so why do they matter to me? Thank you for writing this piece.
