Do you show your human side at work? Also share your gender if you’re comfortable. I’m F and I generally do, but wondering if this is not perceived well. For example, sometimes I talk to my peers about my weekend plans, sometimes about how tired I am because of work, I recently had surgery and shared with them details about it.

I do all of the above (also F) except surgery - I wouldn't divulge that unless I either A. was close to the person or B. was explaining to leadership why I'm taking extended time off.

Yeah I do this to a degree. Just had surgery and talked about it openly, dont really care. Weekend plans I will share details with my close co workers who are into similar things, but I'm not telling my coworkers that I got super drunk one night and things like that. Just "met up with some friends"

I’m having a hard time staying motivated lately. Really apathetic about everything. Feels like I’m falling into a bad depressive slump.
