A PROFFESIONAL FRIEND and A PERSONAL FRIEND
25 Aug 08
I think that when it comes down to it a "Professional Friend" is more like an acquiantance in that they do not necessarily get to see the more personal side of our personalities or nature. The way we carry ourselves and act at work is generally very different to the way we would act outside of it. A "Personal Friend" gets the real us! We are able to more freely act in a relaxed manner and can truly be ourselves without having to be concerned about keeping up the appearances that we have to be constantly aware of at work. We can be far more relaxed outside of work than inside work and our personalities reflect this in both cases.
