Under normal circumstances, you probably spend more time with your work family than anyone else – maybe even more than your biological family. They’re the people you complain to about the company, relationships, and life, and regular hallway vent sessions can be as crucial to your day as your morning coffee.
But in 2020, you’ve probably seen a lot less of them. The people who were your daily company might now be disembodied voices on a screen, and your daily water cooler talk or your morning and afternoon carpool are distant memories. And that’s a profoundly sad thing. You may not have realized it until you lost contact with them, but your co-workers are rarely just co-workers – they’re often good friends, and their faces and voices inevitably become a vital part of your week.
