Life for many these days isn’t all rainbows and unicorns, per say–especially work life. It is easy to get trapped in the routine and the drama that this can bring, especially if you work with several people with different situations and struggles.
It is very important to have a clear idea of what your purpose at work is, whatever the task. You’re there to do the best you can and be the best you can, but never forget…it’s just work, it’s not all your life or who you are.
Pay no mind to unnecessary or negative situations and individuals. Instead of adding stress to the work environment, get together with the team and work on a solution to whatever issue you might encounter, instead of letting it escalate to unnecessary heights.
Respect and understanding of others goes a long way and makes all the difference in the world. Always root (See what I did there?) for your peer’s success and do your best to succeed yourself!
