This feels so stupid, but I feel so lost and sad since my coworker/boss left our job yesterday. We got to talk and reminisce and left on extremely good terms, like we will work again in the future, but something about it just makes me so sad. He was the last and only person here really who saw the potential I have in this field and would advocate for me when others would not. I’m so extremely proud and happy for him and I can’t wait to work with him again in the future, but It’s so bittersweet and I can’t help but feel so empty. I know this is so stupid but I can’t help it

    It's not stupid, although I can't say I've ever felt that way. But my mom has worked in her field for over 20 years, and there are some people she recalls, that were good people and that she had a good time working with, as they were her boss. Making an emotional and/or friendship-type, connection with someone, who treats you well at your job, is nothing to be ashamed of. So, the way you feel is valid, and I guarantee other people have felt the same way as you.

      he was like a mentor to me, he opened my eyes to a career path that I love, helped me with school and we just genuinely get along so well. I know he told me he 100% would love to work together again in the future and I would too, I just hope we can ya know?
