Subject: Thinking about you all

Hey all!

You have been on my mind a lot! In fact — you are taking up mucho mental space. I have a lot of things to get done. I get that you want the best for me, and I get where you all are coming from. But I wonder if you are being kinda needy — you know, like a helicopter parent. Remember: we are on the same team. Therefore, I will notice when you all are trying to get my attention, give you a minute or two of my time, and then continue on my day. I am trying to move forward and progress. I know you understand where I am coming from. It’s been real.

It’s not me, it’s you.
