I hate when I have to give updates to people, especially over digital communication. I think there’s an expectation with digital communication that you can be more in-depth than you are in person (i.e., “How are you?” “Ok”). But how do I communicate everything that I’m going through without being overwhelming? What’s the right balance of transparent sharing and polite conciseness? It’s so much easier when things are genuinely just good. The struggles compounding on one another… Not very fun.
