Today my manager announced about her last day at her firm in few weeks. I am excited and happy for her new job yet I’m sad coz she is one of the best manager ever I’ve had through out my career. I look up to her.
Here it goes, every time I change the projects or people go away who were close to me while working, it hurts and leaves me in pain for few days. Some times depending on the association with the person the sadness remains much longer or perhaps that part of my relationship with the person goes missing.. part of me goes missing. She is one such a wonderful person. At the same time, I’m glad for her move.. I wish her the best and hope to work with her in the future.
And it is also worth mentioning about another person from work who was not part of my team but accidentally bummed into him coz he took over my cubicle that I was attached to. He ended up being one of my close buddies that I can rely on and till date I still miss ranting about my daily activities in general to him.
These associations are for a short while and happened to me numerous times. It is still difficult to accept that I’ll not get to see them every other day or may be ever. I bid farewell to them with utmost sadness and hope to meet them sometime in the future. On the other hand, I do get to meet new people and well the cycle repeats.
It happened umpteenth times and yet wonder why on the earth do I get emotionally connected with these associations?
Why am I not indifferent or insensitive in-spite of this phenomenon?. I am not ready to accept the reality of life, which we just have to walk alone on this planet and cherish only those wonderful memories from all these associations one comes across. Thankfully, I do not anticipate the end at the beginning and that makes everything look wonderful. Think about it, we know we are going to move out of this planet anytime yet we are hopeful and work hard to make a beautiful life here.
I love being hopeful, love to get excited about small little things, love to share and spread the joy no matter what I am going through in my life, I promise you that you’ll see only a beautiful, joyful and cheerful world as long as you are around me. If you see some other things too.. well you know.. After-all we are human beings just like any other with all emotions tied into it.
This blog post is dedicated for all those who were part of my life for shortest-while at work and were the most beautiful beings ever I met and spent part of my life with them.
Dear readers/visitors – I would love to hear back from you of how would you cope up with these short-lived-associations in life?
P.S: Your suggestions might help me in looking the same thing from different perspective and make me feel less sad about it.
