Hello I know I am chiming into this conversation late but I just wanted to add my experience as well. I am in a completely different job field working in the library system but I experience the same feelings as you do Jess. I have been here for 2 years and yet I feel like I don’t fit in. I go above and beyond my job and make no complaints, I always ask how everyone is doing, how their weekend was and such. But I just don’t seem to have a place in the little group here. I have tried sharing many of their interests and have even used my hobby of crochet to make gifts. Even though I feel like I am trying to buy friendship. In moments when I see groups hanging out here and chatting or laughing about something I myself feel like crying because I feel left out. It puts me in a depressed mood because I begin questioning what is wrong with me and why I do not fit in.
