Observation Wrong

Observation Wrong was written after arriving home from an emotional day at work in 2010. My boss who I thought knew me quite well, invited me into his office to express his concern regarding my emotional behaviour. At the time, I was experiencing huge transitions in my life, and he not being aware made a harsh accusation about my personal well being. We are somewhat still connected.
