You know you are amazing, and the only way everybody else knows that too is when you tell them. Strike up a conversation with your colleagues as and when possible. Take an interest in their lives, treat them the way you wish to be treated and you will get much better returns. There may be some points in the starting when you feel alone. There’s no need to worry, bad times come only to pass. Stay optimistic, stay motivated and soon you’ll have your own little work family.
