Fraternizing Beyond Casual-Office Relationships

Let’s be honest, are you really into him/her? Most companies have policies that will not allow office relationships happen, yet some do not. Either way, this is never a good idea. Relationships do happen, especially when you see the same people day in and day out.

Have you seen House? What about Drop Dead Diva? Bonds sprout and friendships strengthen…relationships happen!

However, before your relationship goes to another level, make sure that this love quarrel won’t cost you a job, better yet…a career! Not to say that this has happened to me (laughs out loud), but I know someone who has found his way around the office, more than once! Did it turn out well? I’m sure not, but I want to look out for you guys and give warning.


Choose the Right Person

Not to make this a power thing, but try to avoid someone in a higher rank. First comes attachment, then favoritism, then office gossip — a drama web! Be sure to avoid married individuals…watch for those ring tans, people!

Know Company Policy

Read the fine print! Some companies have strict rules about office relationships, and you should respect those boundaries. Understand the consequences that follow! Don’t let your wandering imagination cause trouble for you!

There Will Not Be a Fairytale Ending

Most of the time…anyway. If things don’t work out, can you imagine how badly you’ll be hurt when your feelings become deeply involved? Having to see this person every day…awkwaaaarrrrrd! What if you two have to work together on a work project — your work performance may get the downfall.

We’re all grown, yes. But, don’t risk losing your job. Be professional.

Practicing Self-Love: My 10 Commandments

ahhh…endearment 🙂

self love
I am glad that you are reading this post. This isn’t by chance or you just so happened to “stumble” across this post. It was meant to be. Self-love is an individual journey that only YOU can pilot, but often we allow others to direct us consciously and/or unconsciously.

In 2013 I met my mentor, Marion Christopher Pugh, who inspired me to develop my own journey of self-love through his everyday life. He has created his own environment of tranquility, happiness, and support even in the most toxic areas and moments. If you ever have a conversation with Chris I am sure you have heard him say “love yourself.” These two words carried me since I have met him. Sounds completely cheesy, but that is where my true self-love journey began and I am still growing. This journey is a life-time mastery, but it is beautiful struggle that takes time…

Procrastination Is Over…

OMG! So I know I stated a while back that I would stop procrastinating and begin blogging consistently as I first began. I love and enjoy researching, learning new things and getting to share those things with you all. I love the support that I’ve had and gained since my blog first launched. I appreciate the feedback and interaction that you all have given as well. If not for my audience, I wouldn’t have a blog…really. Yes so little, but I never thought that I’d get this many followers and that’s something for me to be proud of. I realize in order to keep my followers and to keep the support…I should probably continue blogging!

My blog initially started as a class project, then led to a passion for me. Then I slowly began to get sidetracked with other things and forgot that I even had a blog. Life happened! But anyhow, I said all of that to say that I will continue to grow with you all through my blog. And I ask that you continue to support me and my efforts on TipToeAround.com 🙂
