Last week I changed groups at work. Meaning, I’m working the same (sucky!) shift but with different people.
It’s not bad exactly, it’s just that after almost six months of working with two partners, finally finding a good dynamic and functioning fluently with them it’s a heavy thing to begin the adaptability process again. Everything shifts.
My new partners couldn’t be more different from my previous ones and their work approach couldn’t be more different from mine.
I spent the whole eight hours asking my brain how I’m going to get used to this new people.
AGAIN. And it was loud and the few laughing bits were not synchronized at all (if there’s ever a better sign of an awkward moment in the office, I don’t know of it), my back hurt and I just wanted to get out of there.
So when the shift ended I went here to let all that stress go and recharge.
It rained a bit and I just stood there breathing the peaceful breeze and clearing my head. Total contrast of mindset.
