That too shall pass...I guess

I keep forgetting that people I work with are not my friends but just random strangers. Stupid me. Naïve me. Though people are not to blame if they turn out to be not whom I took them for I can’t help feeling hurt.

The girl in question sits opposite me and right now I hate to be in one room with her let alone to endure the sight of her treacherous face for another 4 heavy hours.

Oooohhh that's not good, having to work with someone you don't like.
I treat my colleagues as colleagues, except for 4 people. Everyone else, the moment the main doors are closed behind me, remain at my place of work. This saves a lot of problems!
I am lucky that apart from 2 exceptions, my colleagues are all very nice people and very gregarious and funny. But... they are not nor will even be my friends. And I think it suits both sides :)

Same here, only the girl that provoked the entry happens to be one of the three out of numerous people I have to deal with on daily basis that I take for a friend. Or so I thought. OK, I still do. It takes a lot of fuck ups to make me erase a person from the list of my friends so she’s still on it. She just did something outrageously selfishly-she used me in an attempt to excuse a mistake she did. She didn’t mean to harm me; she only wanted to save her ass and that is why I forgave her. Still I was hurt and what she did was dishonourable and disgraceful and, for better or worse, I still believe that honour and dignity matter.
I keep a distance too. It wasn’t a conscious choice of conduct but rather an intuitive one that proved to be the right one.

True of course. Some of my colleagues are also my friends.
