DEAR DEIDRE: A GUY who was a friend at work turned on me and said I cry to get what I want if things aren’t going my way.
That’s not true, it’s just that I’m an emotional person.
I’m a woman of 28. I’ve been with this firm for a year and have always got on well with my colleagues.
We count as key workers so we still go in.
However, I got into a trivial argument with one man.
He made sharp comments and I did burst into tears – I couldn’t help it.
It feels awkward at work now, though we were quite close before. Should I approach him?

DEIDRE SAYS: My guess is he felt guilty when you started crying and made his comments defensively.
Keep it simple but tell him you regret the silly argument and that you got so upset.
Say you hope you can still be friends. But if he does not respond, just leave it.
My e-leaflet on Standing Up For Yourself will help you deal with this assertively.
