OMG it's Maggie

Hi, thanks for the effort of the post. I don't know if it's normal, but I'd say it's logical. I'm in this racket for over 10 years and in the beginning, I had a hard time dialling it all down. I can't speak for all seniors (am i even a senior?), but I grew out of it. I feel as though I have found a nice balance, mostly. Sometimes it still sucks, but that's all it is. A moment of suck, I muddle a long and it doesn't last as long as it does. I guess you get used to it and you climb out of it faster, I suppose.

I'm glad that over the years you grow out of it, or at least learn how to deal with it. (I'm not an expert but I would say that spending 10 years in the industry probably gave you the knowledge and experience to call yourself a senior!)
