Co-workers who were cold to me are cooing over new hire

DEAR HARRIET: I remember how my co-workers treated me when I was new to the job: cold, distant, and totally uninterested in helping me adjust.

While they dutifully answered any questions I had, their responses were curt and unwelcoming.

Now I look around and see them cooing about a new colleague, trying to help as much as they can and treating them like one of the family. It doesn’t feel right or fair. What could this be about? How do I not take it personally?

Not fair

DEAR NOT FAIR: It’s hard to notice someone being treated significantly better than you and not responding to this behavior.

Do your best to let it go. Asking your colleagues about it won’t help you. Begrudging the new person will only create more tension.
