Just wondering

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

Today I was reflecting on all the people who said they were my friend. Granted, these were co-worker friends. At the time it seemed that we connected on a level that went beyond work. We'd chat about family, puppies and home disasters (you know, the ones where your kid leaves water running and soon its trickling down the stairs or when you let hubby cook in the kitchen and you remember why the kitchen is your domain!!)

As soon as we weren't on the same team or no longer assigned to the same office, the connection was gone and the friendship was lost like so many ashes from a campfire that was no longer needed.

I do treasure the two (2) work friends that I've been able to hold onto. I'd just like to know what happened to the others? I have made attempts to keep in touch...but, unanswered e-mails speak as loudly as words. They seem to say, "I have no use for you" or "we no longer have anything in common".

It feels kind of sad.

With this thought, though, I will be letting the friends who stayed know just how much I value their friendship!!

    Trying to have work friends for me is the worst. As soon as I move jobs or move to a new position my "friends" don't really have much to say to me.

    I tried meeting friends online, but that didn't seem to last either.

    The best friends I have are the ones I've made from them being my neighbor or someone I knew introduced me to them.

    Well said! I understand were you are coming from. That has happened to me. You have to just be able to let go. Know that there are other people you will meet and have strong connections with and will be your friends forever. The ones that ignore emails and phone calls are not the type of people you want as friends anyway! You deserve better! emoticon
