Woke up this morning to a TechCrunch article about my old hometown friend's company getting acquired.

I’m not really friends with them anymore, and this spurred some massive feeling of jealousy and envy, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it as I started my day.

What’s the best thing to do in this situation?

Instead of ruminating on it, just do the opposite. Reach out to them and talk to them. So that’s what I did. I sent them a DM congratulating them.

Everyone has their moment. And there's always someone doing better than you at a given time.

After sending that DM, I no longer have those feelings of jealousy.

Back to work now.
