how do you not take something personally? I'm usually kind of talkative and normally my coworker (who I'm working alone with) talks to me a lot- I'd consider us friends. today she is super quiet and even kind of snapped at me that she didn't want to talk today. we're alone at work for the next 5 hours. what do I do to calm the anxiety that I've done something to offend her?

    I feel that there might not be much to do but wait. If you know you didn't do anything wrong, then you haven't done anything wrong. They are probably just having a bad day. Stress balls help, just try to keep yourself occupied, it will pass!

      I've been trying to, but it's soooo awkward in here right now. You could cut the tension with a knife. I'm going to have to be here until 5:30 (it's 12:20 right now for me)

    I think the first thing is trying to understanding that everything isn’t about you. Your coworker could be going through personal things and could have a lot on her mind.. it could be family, their health etc you never know… I think you should just take a minute and take a deep breath. Let them have their space. Since you know you haven’t done anything control that and keep saying to yourself that they just need a personal moment.
