It’s been a tough and emotional week.
Sometimes when I show my emotions I feel like I’m letting myself down. I especially hate showing my emotions at work, it’s like I’m displaying my weaknesses.
This week has been full of tearful goodbyes. Goodbyes to people I’ve admired and respected for years. People that I’ve learnt valuable skills from and people that I not only class as colleagues, but also as friends. My sadness is not from losing them initially but from losing them long-term as I know over time communication will cease, it’s only natural. You have to work at relationships and when you become consumed with your life and work and everything involved with being you, things slip.
So for everyone going on to pastures new, good luck. I will miss you.
