Two years in the Corporate World!

Same day, same time, two years back, I was wondering what does life have in store for me! Today, it has been two years in the corporate world and I feel it happened just yesterday. Time really flies. Needless to say, these two years have taught me a lot, not just about work, but also about life, people and situations. Being through so many ups and downs has certainly made me a better and stronger person. When I look back, I don't really regret much. Whatever mistakes I made, taught me some important lessons of life that I might not have learnt otherwise. My achievements took my confidence to new levels. Moreover, interacting and working with different kinds of people has been an interesting experience altogether.  Every individual has his own perception towards work, and coordinating with various individuals having different perceptions has been a learning experience. Along with the positive aspects, this life can be equally harsh as well. Yes there have been times when I was wrong, and also when I was wronged. There were situations when I had to be nice to people I personally never liked. There have been circumstances when I had to keep my mouth shut despite being right, when I had to follow insensible instructions of my colleagues just because they were more experienced and I was a fresher, when I was not given due credit for my work, etc etc. This is the truth of corporate world. At one moment it fills your heart with pride whereas at another it humiliates you like anything. At one moment it takes you to new heights of success, whereas at another it thrashes you so badly that you do not even realize what just happened. In short, it's a grey world. People say that you cannot make friends in a professional environment which, to a great extent is true. Here friendships are short-lived. I have made very very few, close "friends" during two years of my professional life and hope they'll always remain that way. On the whole, it has been a sweet and sour experience for me and I am sure there is a lot more to learn in coming years!
