Straight out of college I was hired into a small corporate world. I was feeling confident in my work. Six months into my reign as a career woman another woman was hired to “share” my job. I had no need for her and all her “experience”. She knew how I felt. One day she gave me a plant and said “Let’s start over.” She helped me the day of my wedding and we have been friends for fifteen years.
It only takes a small gesture of kindness to change one’s perspective and to form a new relationship.
