I have learned the hard way. I wasn’t always this way and it has bitten me many times in my career. The people you work with are not your friends. They are co-workers. You can be friendly, of course, but you should keep all personal and family matters to yourself. As much as you can without being a jerk. If you cross the line, and become friends with them, as you would with someone outside of work, you are asking for trouble potentially, that could affect your job.
That being said, I am a Christian, so, this is where I will cross the line. If someone asks me about
my faith. Then I will share with them about
It has been said, if Christianity were a crime, would the people at work be able to testify against you?
I try and live my life in a way, that the answer to this would be yes.
But that being said, I’m not walking around banging people over the head with it.
Back to the main topic…I would never share health issues in detail with any coworkers or bosses or HR. Never.
If you’ve already told people at work including bosses, I would start to downplay your illness as much as possible.
You do not want anyone there to think your work is being compromised in any way.
My two cents.
