It’s lonely up there

I used to think that it was simply a figure of speech. Or perhaps the sorry individual didn’t wasn’t sociable enough to keep his friends. Or perhaps he never really did have any friends to start with.
But I’m beginning to see how this can happen. And I suppose it’s just inevitable. As your friends who double as your colleagues rise in the organisation, they would gradually drift apart. Structurally and systematically, as we work towards different goals, it’s almost by design that you would lose all your friends. 不思議な。
