A colleague of mine is leaving this week and we are at this lunch meeting where everyone is talking about the good things and bad things – along with the challenges people are facing at work, etc.

There is also a good amount of appreciation for this collegue, who must be quite sad that she is leaving after eight years of work here.

It is quite interesting to see how people get emotionally attached to their jobs and colleagues as it becomes a part of their life style as they spend significantly high amount of time at work with their colleagues.

I feel this is another phase in life, from which you gain good experience, valuable friendships and fond memories.

I wish her all the best for her future.
