I didnt expect today, the last day on my job to be this emotional and heart felt. Going through today, what it made me realize is, people who you spend so much time with every single day, are around for so many months or however long, well...become a huge influence and part of your daily life. Some people may feel a lot closer to you than you may ever think. But its not until its a time like this, where one leaves that they show their feelings towards you. Nobody wanted to me leave. I am going to miss them and they are going to miss me. Though I promised I will still keep in touch with quite a few there, its just not the same. The inner feeling hits you just like that of bam...you are no longer working there and will not have these wonderful people around you for 8 hours a day Mon-Fri. These people to interact with, say hi to, bye, ask how they are doing, how their day has been, and so on. Little things like this we must all, always appreciate it and never take it for granted. You never know, it could happen when least unexpected. Even for the past week or even 2 weeks, since I submitted my notice, people kept asking when im leaving, why, saying they dont want me to, etc. I didnt think it would be this touching though. Ive learned that you can never underestimate just how much people care about you. I come into work this morning. Co-workers offer to buy me lunch. I even had a couple who normally sit in another room than me, move into my room for the day just to have me around them. That right there, says a lot. It almost made me cry because it showed just how much they didnt want me to leave. You may not always agree on the same things, you may have your arguements, but deep down they really care for you as a person and as a friend. Througout the day, emails from co-workers wishing me luck saying goodbye. 3 co-workers took me out for lunch and that right there, once again was very caring. A picture says a thousand words. That was a moment to remember. Just how caring these people were towards me. The managers came up to me, saying their goodbyes, wishing me luck, shaking my hand. They really didnt want to see me leave. I even had people who I have never even talked to come up to me and say goodbye, asking where im going, why im leaving. These two girls that I have been madly attracted to right from when I first laid my eyes on them many many many months ago...came up to me with a smile asking where I was going. These are two girls who we have never officially introduced each other to, never gotten to know each other...and yet once they saw me as everyone was leaving the office, saying goodbye to the manager...they walked up to me and were so caring...they were curious. Do you think this is a sign of them caring about others that they dont even nessecarily know? In this case, it would be me. Cause why would they ask right? I could tell that they didnt want to see me leave, even though they didnt know me as a person. The two girls who I have been struggling for many many months to even say hi to, be myself around them...end up talking to them in a very casual friendly easy going manner on the final day im there. How ironic is that. I feel bad because of the constant oppurtunities Ive had, and yet wasnt able to talk to them and be myself until the very last day. Too little, too late. They were such nice friendly girls, and Im proud of myself that I was able to show that back to them just how easy going friendly of a person I am as well. Its definitely a moment that stings and not in a good way, but nothing I can really do to turn back time now. BTW, I do plan on paying a visit to them...as they want to see me, and I want to see them. Im still trying to accept that I will no longer have these people around me. Something that I had the joy of for the past 6 months.
