Hi Zelmarq, You need to look at this as just another step in your life. You won't lose friends, but see a little less of them, and make new ones. I'm sure you will take the move in your stride. Good luck!

it is true that we will miss those friends that we leave behind. i have been through this many times before. when i leave a company to work for another, i find myself paying frequent visits to where i was used to work for. however, i was also able to cultivate new friends where i get to have a new work. slowly, the missing will be subtler and much easier to deal with. i am pretty sure that this will also be taking place in our friend here. coping will just be a matter of time. it is really good to have lots of friends scattered around where we live. it is always with a happy note when we will meet old friends after having been separated through time.

Old and long forgotten friends do turn up quite unexpectedly when old age sets in.I have experienced it.

i believe that the reason for the transfer to another department is becasue, the company has found you to be more capable in the other department. since you were found to be better fitted in another department, this usually goes with a promotion, too. for this, my friend, i would say congratulations for having achieved this feat in your work. more power and may you be able to cultivate more close friends in that new department while keeping the old ones. this will mean having more friends around for you. enjoy your work life and keep on enjoying it all the more.

As the saying goes the only permanent in life is change. Change brings about new learnings, new horizon. You are in the right track because you accept change in a positive way. That is the correct attitude! We would not have "grown" if we just stayed in one corner from day 1. You can still be friend with your friends but open your heart to new ones. In time you will have lots of friends.

Oh that must make you sad but at least they are still on the same building, maybe you could have lunch with them and find other ways to stay in touch like emails etc and catching up over coffee or have dinner together sometimes. I'm sure you will be fine. At least you havnt moved too far away from your friends atwork. All the best with your new job position. You will no doubt lake new friends.

Cool to hear that you got such a positive out look on your career. Yeah, happy moments are always awsome, and at times it is sad that we can't keep'm going, that's part of life though. Constant change, that's the only thing that is promised in life, I believe, constant change. It is always sad to keep moving on, leaving friends behind to find new ones. Not to say you should forget those friends. I suggest to keep in contact and keep the communication lines open. I have friends who have not seen each other in years but still keep in contact throught the net, and phone.

I too have lost many friends over the years from situations such as completing high-school, university, transferring jobs, and moving to other countries. It is really hard to keep close to someone you do not see around in your everyday life. A phone call or an email here a there can be done, but its just not the same. The best part...you have an opportunity to make new friends, and find out who your true friends are, the ones that will stick by you no matter what.

But who knows? Mabye you could strike a chance and get a phone call from your friends, Happy-Mylotting

We'll still see each other here in the office, but surely I'll miss sitting beside you when I'm bored here in my office. I hope you won't stop selling us food though, those are one of the things I enjoy here.hehe ^_^

I can understand that whilst you are looking forward to the new challenges it is always hard to leave behind the people you have grown close to and shared so much time with. I hope that the people you are going to be working with are as nice as those you have worked with up until now! Good Luck xxx

Hello Zelmarq. I used to have the same case when I moved from one school to another more than a decade ago. Till now I still miss my old colleagues who are so far away from me. It is not easy for me to go back to visit them because of the location, but I did manage to pay them a visit a few years ago. We were so happy to see each other. I went back to my old school to see my old friends and colleagues together with my wife and son. We had a good time there. I miss those good old days. Enjoy your life, friend.
