    Working Life - 1>>Kindly correct grammatical mistake if any

    I have been working since four years. These four years had taught me a lot. It is always better to keep your personal, professional and social life different. Never mix up one another. Never gossip about A colleague to C. C might be your best friend today, but he can be you best enemy other day. If he tells everything to A whatever you said about him to C, then you will be in frying pan. Shall I need to say anything further, how it would be for you then?

    I don't understand this bit. "how would it be for you then?"

    Thanks for your help. Kindly let me know what it should be instead of it.

    Also Kindly tell
    1. why using 'since four years ' is incorrect?

    2. Never them mix up or never mix them up.

    Also Kindly tell
    1. why using 'since four years ' is incorrect? "since" indicates a time in the past: "Since I met you four years ago, I have been working". You are saying that for four years you have been working - that is the length of time you have worked.

    2. Never them mix up or never mix them up.
