Friends @ work life

Love makes life beautiful. Friendship makes life colorful.

Early in the morning I’ve become so nostalgic that I miss so many friends of mine here in Pune. More than that the same unanswerable thing that I ‘have to’ miss them makes me helpless and hence more worried. But that’s life. Partying and departing are the two opposite sides of a coin called friendship. Of course, departing stays restricted to the physical distances and not mental ones. That’s hugely relaxing. Thanks to the all mobile world.

As I remember my earlier days in Pune few years back, it was full of fun. It used to be full of friends in the surroundings. I don’t know what makes me roll down tears as I write this. It’s absolutely hurting as I have to accept the fact that we are all bound to miss people in life at some or other point of life; yet it’s very beautiful; those memories, those days, those friends are few of the priced possessions I’ve till date.

Fortunately or unfortunately, in my case, work makes me give attention to those wonderful days in my thoughts, to all those wonderful people, friends, with whom I worked once. Fortunate that I remember them and along with that i feel the goodness once we shared. Unfortunate for the whole and sole reason that those good things would not happen again or I must say might not happen again!

Understanding between friends is very common in college days. But understanding between two colleagues is not rare but of less probable case. Colleagues turned friends are the most missed ones in the work life out of all those whom we have to miss. Usually, the rest stay or not really does not matter much personally. But what my professional life taught me is something interesting and thinkable. The rest are so important that you have to have them with you to identify the very few who might turn up best for you as friends in the days to come, you never know it! After all a bit of sharing and caring at times makes life-time friends.

I differ in opinion with what many people say about friends in work life. I believe we might not have friends all the time with us but at some or the other point of time we end up finding them. This will mean lot of wait for some. And for fortunate people like me they come without much wait. But they go too; I mean they leave, again in terms of distances but not too far that you have to worry.

Well, this write-up has been a great start for me for another day. Looking forward to do the best; Good day all.

I manage to get along well with everyone at work - so a lot of time gets spent chit-chatting but I am not sure I can call any of them my 'real friends'...But then again, I like keeping it that way...I have a circle of friends outside the work-sphere and each day, I look forward to my work timings ending so that I can go spend time with those friends :)

I have never been one to mix groups and for me the work-place is a place that I like to come to just to work :) I don't mind exchanging pleasantries and discussing trivial daily life happenings to pass time with my colleagues but I am never sure if I can call them my 'friends' ever!

Yes, friends do make life colourful. One can have friends at work place too as long as that does not make one neglect work or fail in carrying out duty because of friendship.

Take care
