A superior becomes a peer once they start complaining about the job

So when I first started at this job in July, a peer, Jane, was assigned to oversee my onboarding. Ok she was a peer but felt like a superior. Jane was responsible for my learning the job, she’s been around for 4 years. 

I still use her as my first point to answer questions of mine. We’re friendly too. I tell her a little about Mona too. It’s all good. 

Now I’ve been there 6 months now. We no longer have our onboarding calls. And today, she mentioned how she was unhappy with the job/ company. At that point, it was official: we’re equals. Superiors don’t complain about their jobs to people under them.
