“Being a part of the furniture”
Can be seen as a term of endearment.
People know where to find you.
You show up regularly enough
For others to know they can lean on you,
Depend on you
Make plans around you
And sadly, also take you for granted.
For any organisation,
It’s important to recognize
That unlike furniture,
People can get up and leave
Given the right circumstance.
So no matter how long someone has been
A part of your team
Never forget that the best parts of people are the
So be sure to handle them with care
Lest one day you wake up and realize
That the cupboard has been moved.
