Now bad for future prospects. You just have might want to ask more generally about the process. Itâs always best to understand, and might save you heartache in the future.

One thing I keep thinking is that what the client experiences is what matters. Although you got balled up inside, and weâve talked about a desire to behave less than ideally here, your actual client interaction sounds very professional.

We all have come home and let off steam, and asked for advice before stepping back and looking at things from a different perspective. Whatever you thought, nobody should diss how you acted, which is what mattered.
