You work around the same people for eight hours a day. It is hard not to build relationships with them. I would even call some of them friendships. But very few would earn the title, “work bestie.”
I have been lucky that every place I’ve worked, be it a newsroom or a cubicle, I’ve found that one person I can call my work bestie. This is someone who I trust. Someone I can be myself around. These people have been my friends through the ups and downs and changes. They are there for me even when we’re no longer in the same workplace.
I’ve maintained relationships with some of them for several years. I can’t imagine my life without them.
At first it was daunting to find that person. Opening up to them was even harder. But it has been so worth it.
I don’t always tell my work bestie how much I appreciate everything they do for me, every day. So, THANK YOU!
