fbpx How Do I Stay Private While Connecting With My Coworkers?
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on January 11, 2022
Dear Dr. Michelle:

I work with a bunch of people who are very open. They talk about their personal lives and share quite a bit with the rest of the group. I’m very private and I try to keep my personal life and work life separate.

As a result, I think they are feeling like I am cold and not interested. How do I handle this?  I still value these relationships.

Sincerely,
Robbie
