Flinching

It's easy to forget how recent the 2008 recession was. If you were alive then, you likely experienced the economic pain of that era in some form. It was quite traumatic for many.

When I hear updates on the markets these days, I flinch a bit. I remember the pain of that time and realize that my body has not quite forgotten the stress and strain of the 2008 recession. I flinch and experience a bit of that trauma once again.

It's important to pay attention to these emotions and our physical responses to what is going on in our interior lives and in the world around us these days.  ... It's also important to notice that the emotions and vitriolic reactions of some to what is going on in the world right now has a direct correlation–in many instances–to their experience in 2008.

They're flinching too. Which ought to stir some empathy even if you disagree with their responses.

...

On a brighter note, me and some of my colleagues are offering a virtual lunch and learn each Tuesday. Our second was today. Below is a recording of last week's. Feel free to join us next Tuesday!
