I have been told I am quiet person.
I’ve been advised to do more small talk at work.
” You don’t have to plan a meeting if you want to discuss something”.
In fact, someone advised to book time in my calendar to make small talk with colleagues.
“If you don’t have any work related topics, ask them how they are doing”.
What they did in the weekend.
How they’re wife is.
The freaking color of their socks??
Truth is, I am shy.
I am afraid that I’m wasting their time.
I am afraid I’m wasting MY time.
I can’t remember when trying to work efficient has become a negative mindset.
But apparently, people have been talking about me.
“She doesn’t show much interest in her colleagues”, has been mentioned.
Since I started here, nobody has showed interested in me either.
Neither they wanted to take the time to help.
You didn’t hear me complaining about it. I was fine with being left alone.
With their talking behind someone’s back, they forgot one tiny detail.
Communication is a two way street!
