    I kept my self busy at work, I look at the window, take a deep breath and concentrate on what I am doing.

    When I am sad, I prefer to be silent, If I want to cry I will go to the Toilet or wash room.

    When I am not on the mood and I cannot concentrate, I go to the restaurant, drink coffee and look for some sweets or chocolates.

    First of all sadness inside the office is not justified because one should know that one is at office not by birth and does not have any emotional relationship with the office mates. Office work is a commercial relationship and a job which should not be allowed to turn into a emotional relationship.

    Relationships and conversations in an office should be very cordial and devoid of emotional attachments as far as possible. If you do have an emotional equation with anyone in your office it is better to separate that relationship from office and enjoy it in a different venue. At the same time it is necessary to make it very clear to your mate that at office you have every right to be the same straightforward and demanding person that you are supposed to be.

    Rest assured I feel things should be alright.

    Best Regards,

    What is the "root-cause" of the sadness that is in your office? Until you discover the root- cause, you cannot deal with the problem. Once you know the root-cause of the problem, there are ways of attacking the problem to make life better in your office. Don't take my suggestion for granted. I am a professional that do deal with problems like this for a living. Usually there is a way to solve problems like the one you are experiencing in your office, changing things to make live better, and then, to move on into the future. Remember, begin this process by finding the root-cause, first. Good luck, my friend. Take care.

    Many find it difficult to keep their personal and professional life separated especially when the problem continues to emotionally disrupt daily activities. If the sadness is regarding another co-worker I would highly suggest be a friend or a caring co-worker but keep a distance from the situation and allow them to deal with their own personal problems. However, if it is your own personal sadness I would highly recommenced that you seek help or advice from someone you trust and gain some insight on the situation before work and personal life begin to tangle up that can result in loss of employment. Recently a co-worker has been bringing his personal problem to work and it has been difficult for everyone to function in an office setting without allowing ourselves to be affected by the situation and it has made work fairly difficult. Sadness is never ideal and it occurs, finding way to deal with it outside of the office will help now allowing to cloud the mentality and make unnecessary mistakes at the work place that can effect you professionally in a negative manner.
