I have had this nagging and reoccuring feeling in my head for the last couple months. It is hard to describe. A feeling that I have lost sight of a little part of me. Nothing noticeable probably to anyone else and nothing dramatic but I have felt it. I am worried I have become much more transactional in relationships (work or otherwise), and I really don't want to be that. I haven't really been able to put my finger on exactly what it is. But, earlier today I read this graduation speech by George Saunders that the NYTimes Magazine reprinted and it is worth reading. He is right. We should all be kinder.
