Starting over

Workday eubL52
Jan 31

I recently transitioned from one job to another and went for an office tour at my new gig before I started. Everything was going really really well but there was a part of me that was nervous. I accidentally mentioned that to my new co-worker and am trying to get on a better foot. What would your first impressions of me be after saying that? How can I recover?

    Pretty sure your co worker probably doesn't give a fuck, at least now she knows that your not some sort of sociopath incapable of experiencing emotion.

    I think being nervous is a natural response.

    What did you mean by “get on a better foot”?
