Real friendships are a blessing whether near or far. We all need friends we can count on when we are having a good or bad day. Just like finding a good partner is hard to come by these so are friendships.
Not everyone you meet can be given the title of a friend. Some people you simply talk to by association not because they would be considered a friend.
Here are some reasons why having a loyal work friend is the greatest blessing in life:
1. They Make The Day Go By Faster
Work can be tedious and overwhelming sometimes. Specially when you follow the same routine day in and day out. Work friends never fail at making the day go by faster.
Gossip and jokes all day make work a lot more fun and exciting. You can always count on them to make you laugh. There is never a boring day at the office.
2. Lunch Time Is Always Better With Friends
Lunch breaks are better spent with your favorite work friends. It makes for the perfect time to talk about the boss or the lazy co-worker everyone dislikes.
It allows for you guys to catch up on what couldn't be talked about in the office, or those bathroom breaks between work that turn out to be the funniest bc someone always cracks up a joke.
3. They Always Cheer You Up On Your Bad Days
Some of the realest friends are sometimes the ones we meet at work and not the ones we grew up with. Work friends are a real blessing when you are having the worst day.
They won't let whatever is bothering you continue to take over your thoughts. They try to ease your mind by being there, whether by making you laugh, giving you a much needed hug, or to let you vent. You can always count on them to be there.
4. Nights Out With Friends Are The Best
Some of the best nights are nights spend with your friends. Nothing else in the world matters but the bond you guys have. Making the best of the night is all that matters.
You guys get to have fun without worrying about work. The night is young and a good time is all you guys are looking forward to. Nights out is when you realize that they are more than just work friends, they feel like family.
5. Work Friends Become Family
The friendship and bond you guys developed extends outside the office. Your work friends have become more like family to you than some of your family members.
They genuinely want to see you do better and be better. You are closer to them than you are with most of the friends you grew up with. Your friends feel like a safe haven and judgement free. We all need friends who have our best interest at heart.
