Age has enormous benefits. I recently had the most embarrassing experience of my life that took place in front of a large group of people I see every day. And I feel nothing. In my twenties, I’d be suicidal over something like this. And now my reaction is, “oh, well. Whatever.”
I don’t even remember what it feels like to care what people think of me. I remembered it mattered enormously. But it was so long ago.
