I would normally say that I have good concentration. Today, apparently not.
During my meeting today I zoned out for just a second. There are nine people in my team. I happened to catch sight of the beautiful engagement and wedding rings on my colleague’s finger. And, as your mind can do sometimes, my eyes were directed towards the ring fingers of the rest of my colleagues around the table. Each one was circled by gold or platinum. Except for mine.
Out of nine people, I am the only one who is separated and single. I know that one other is divorced but is in a long term relationship. Another is on their second marriage. I, however, am the only singleton. And I’m the youngest. How depressing.
