No matter how much you’re stressed out at work, you know you can always count on someone in your office to be a supportive presence. That someone whom you consider not just as your coworker, but also as a friend—in and out of the workplace. This person is your go-to comrade not just for exchanging stories over coffee or lunch breaks, but someone who you can trust and depend on if you need something done at work when you need it. But what are you going to do if—for some reason—that friend decides to leave their job?
When you’ve managed to form a close friendship with someone from your workplace, it can be a massive blow on your part to discover that your good friend and colleague is leaving in order to pursue another job in a different company. It’s a tricky thing to be friends with your colleagues because it will create this strange and complex blend of emotions stirring inside of you should they declare their intentions to resign and find greener pastures. But at the end of the day, you still need to deal with the fact that your friend is deciding to move on.
