Complete trust in my opinion is above the emotions of envy. A friend recently told me that even if I, in person, tell her that I hate her still she would think that she heard it wrong or it didn't happenLOL. It is melodramaticTongue but that is trust. Very rarely one can find such trust in any relationship. 

 Maya but if you really meant it and your friend is in denial, how will you get your point across? ..LOL

LOL I know.

But the bottomline here is if you trust each other so much then nothing and no one can create rift.

 Sometimes best friends drift away from each other as they cannot relate to each other any more or have lost interest in the friend.  They may continue to care for each other but don't feel like talking to them every day/ week/ month.  It happens as people move away , get married, grow up Tongue  , or simply going thru different stages in life.

Just a question - what if your college or school mate joins the same office?? that more like friends becoming collegues and not colleagues becoming friends...SmileThis ego problem persists everywhere.. Its not only in office.. Ya, maybe in office there is more ego due to huge crowd residing there..

Office colleagues may have jealousy, but they do help in many ways too.. When we need some help in work, they are there to help.. Infact I feel its through them that we develop the network of corporate friends...

People mostly mistake acquaintances for friends.. which is the mistake here


 
Lol... For me its all the same.. LOL

Anyway at the end they are colleagues.. Acc to this topic we are debating on if colleagues can become friends because they will have ego and jealousy.. What if the old friend also has the same... Its not that a friend cannot have ego or jealousy... Even the frnd can backstab and more importantly they are a big threat because they would be knowing everything about us LOL

...M...

Not everyone wants to take your job, not everyone wants to use you as a stepping stone. With few conversations you can figure out who is and who is not of that type.

With the amount of time I spend with my colleagues I prefer to be more than aquaintances with my colleagues, Over my career I found out this approach helps personally and proffessionally too

To each their own opinion, but I like it this way

My sentiments, too!

My best friend here is also my office-mate! We have shared, along with office space, our happiness, sorrows, heartbreaks, parental nagging (when we were single), husband sorrows LOL, office gossip - the works. I can't imagine sharing so much time, and an office with a mere acquaintance!

Sukh ke sab hain saathi, dukh mein miley na koi! So, dukh ka saathi or "friend of misery" is a true friend Tongue Thus proved - Colleagues can be friends. Chalo, debate ko taala lagao LOL
