I recently received a piece of very exciting but preliminary career news, which I promptly proceeded to share with a few people, relations with some of whom have been more strained than others.  Their reactions have been a good litmus test of the health of the corresponding relationships – ranging from expressions of support and sharing my excitement to pronounced indifference, the latter being a disappointment but not a surprise.  Trying to remind myself that extreme highs and lows (with respect to a given interpersonal interaction) are often two different sides of the same coin.
