As you grow older in life you realize there are more and more acquaintances and less and less friends.
When you are young you have less of most things, and ironically,those things that you acquire on your way to growing up, become the most of the obstacles at a later point. So becoming friends with someone at an early age is lot easier than as you grow older.You can become quickly acquainted…but becoming friends is something different.
Back in the childhood carefree days,school,test,holiday were your entire environment and the only ones who shared that with you were your school mates.Once you go through this routine for years together,you become friends.You even got punished together.!
Now circle back to adult life. Why are we not able to make friends even after working with so many colleagues for so long.? please don’t mistake good acquaintances for good friends.These are two separate things.
The problem starts when you mix up the two. That’s when everything starts to go wrong.
The proportion of trust in you for others is inversely proportional to time.There are exceptions, as there are to most philosophies on the planet.but by and large every strong relationship gets tested.Either by time or circumstance.
So who do you trust at work ?
