A lot of prayer. There is SO much negativity in my office and the gossip is outrageous. I just stay in my office and don’t get sucked into it.

It’s tough. I work in a place where corporate wants us to stay friendly yet workers are treated like they are the worst things ever. So basically everyone moans and complains and you rarely ever see a smile. And for a long time I got sucked into it.

But I had to change cause I was bringing it home and FH was not happy with it. So I go into work each day with a smile and make sure I leave with one. Even if I am the only one there smiling, at least I’m trying. WHen someone starts to moan and complain about something about work I try to see how we can change it into positive or I just completely change the subject. I don’t have to be part of the negative I learned. Even if I am the only positive, at least I know I can do it.

Yes! I just put my earphones in and listen to positive music.

My workplace is terrible. I feel like crap the entire time I’m here and my boss isn’t nice, but I cope by forgetting about it all the INSTANT I leave this place. I really try hard to not think about it and to just think about the exciting things going on in my personal life.

Just stay positive! This too will pass!

@jatelynn:  Do we work for the same company?!

@crayfish:  This.  Totally looking for a new opportunity.  LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO SPEND IT WITH A-HOLES.
