 Perspective shift
Embonious    11:17am Mar 12 2019

Hey all,
I just had some less than ideal work situation where my boss handled things kind of poorly, it I was pleasantly surprised to find that, although I was still stressed out, it felt like a different, lower level than things like this used to, pre-fracture. I feel like my injury and subsequent character building experiences have really put things into perspective in a cool way. My dumb job might be problematic and irritating at times, but it feels like I have this armor after going through so much sh*t these past 6 months. Like this can't bother me, I've been through much worse already.
Anyway, it's been rough and it's nice to finally get to the point where I can see some real benefits of such an unfortunate experience.
I'm curious what, if anything, you all appreciate or respect about how your fracture changed your life/perspective?
