Re: Work friends?

I had what I considered to be really good friends at work that I've known for over a decade. Once I resigned, I didn't hear a damn peep out of 99% of them. I'm the one that had to initiate contact. My "what ifness" kicked in for a few weeks and it really bothered me.

But my best friend is mostly the same in regards to not initiating contact. I've come to the conclusion that I sometimes have a hard time accepting that other folks aren't willing to extend a little bit of energy to just say hi when there's nothing I wouldn't do for them.
