My big sister at work (not my real sister) came back for a visit today. She left the company toward the end of February, and this was the first time she’s been back. I was really glad to see her, of course; I became very close to her in the last few months she was working with me (I don’t just call anyone my big sister). At the same time, though, seeing her made me realize how much I missed her and how much things at work have changed since she left.
I’ve really been quite unhappy with my work situation lately. Not my job, per se, but more from the working environment. My boss still mostly ignores me, and she sounds annoyed when I do talk to her. I barely say two words to my old work crush, to whom I used to spend hours talking after work. The situation has gone on for so long now that I’m not as bothered by it anymore, but occasionally I’ll still feel awkward, especially when my boss and my work crush are being talkative and cheery to each other right in front of me.
When my big sister was still working at our company, things were good. Everything is different now. Seeing my big sister made me think about the old times. The good times. I wish she still worked with me. I want my big sister back.
Luckily, I still have my best friend at work (formerly my “lunch friend”) to keep me sane throughout the day. I would go crazy if I felt like absolutely no one liked me.
