People you work with can remain just that… no interactions whatsoever about things outside the office cubicle.
When I first started my work in the company I am with right now, I thought to myself, “what if nobody there likes me? Do I have to eat lunch by myself everyday?”
I admit, that going to work isn’t supposed to be a social event. I’m supposed to, well, work… and I’d get paid to do that. So why the apprehension and the stress that what if the people wouldn’t like me?
It’s hard moving on a daily basis with mundane tasks and an overload of information, especially without social contact. Imagine working from 9 to 5 without having anyone to talk to, or eat lunch with, or go home with.
I’d go crazy.
Friends make everything seem lighter than they really are. Admittedly, the thing that keeps me going everyday are the people I work with. When you ask me the question, “Why are you working here?” My answer would be, “Because my friends are here.”
I go to work not just for money… but because I have people I want to see, laughs I want to share, and memories I want to create and keep.
Luckily, after a year, I found friends that might just be for keeps.
