No matter how much you love your job, frustrations are bound to happen. Sometimes it becomes too challenging or hard that you feel like your head is going to burst. These are the days you learn the importance of making friends at work. Having someone who understands (or can console you about) your crazy boss
or someone who will tip you on which party to crash for cake or drinks is an additional plus to your work life. They make work more fun, bring life back to the office and give a feeling of connection and happiness. Something we all need in our daily lives.
Since most of us spend a third of our lives at work, it is only reasonable that we put effort into building our friendships and relationships at work. Studies have shown that having friends at work is key to happiness and productivity. A friend at work does not have to be your BFF, it is simply someone you can trust enough to make life more enjoyable and pleasant at the work place. Making friends is as easy as introducing yourself, joining in on opportunities, being consistent and with time sharing will lead to vulnerability. They could end up being BFF after all.
On that note, let me introduce to you Anne, my make up artist. She has mastered her art and her work is well manifested in my posts. Her attention to details in every brush stroke gives a mark of beauty in what she loves doing. Apart from that she (and the team) brings so much life into my shoots that there is never a dull moment. If you have been following my blog, you might have noticed that there is so much laughter. So much that sometimes we doubt our sanity. We have slowly become friends and developed a connection that we are able to talk about non work topics. In my opinion, that is how making friends at work should be; a slow process that allows both parties to search and find similarities, common struggles and interact positively.
So do not hit your head on the wall due to frustrations at work, make some friends, share life and be happy! Follow Anne at chish_makeup_art and call her up for a face beat.
