Dear Tali,
It has been a long time that we got in touch with each other. I hope you and the family is doing great. During our last summer holiday, I’ve told you about the issues that I was having at work and I was very depressed. I’ve had a lot of bad experiences where few colleagues have physically and mentally tortured me for nothing. I found it insulting and women handling is a major issue and my company didn’t take any appropriate action. I’ve finally made a decision and I have resigned. Further, I found a better job that suits my skill set and really wanted to thank you for all of your advice.
Also, the new organization that I’ll be joining soon has loads of benefits for their employees. I was really amazed when they talked about offering free lunches to all the employees. Further, they have a paid vacation option where the employees will get to ease of their stress and rejuvenate.
I’m hoping you are already excited about my new job but let me tell you something even better, well Eric has proposed me last week and I’ve said yes to him. I’m getting married and I want you to be there with me in New York for a month so that we can sort out the entire wedding planning together.
Talk to you soon,
Best Wishes,
