Something’s been weighing on my mind. I messed up in a steering committee & tripped infront of the Sr. Client Stakeholders.

Now I find out he might’ve been laid off and I can’t help but to think it was my fault. We never really talked after this engagement but I feel like it’s my clumsiness that him fired and it makes me feel guilty and give a me anxiety.
