You can get a new job.
Or wait out the people who are bringing negativity to the job you currently have and like.
You can limit your contact with negative people (unless you can’t).
Remember it is not permanent, but temporary.
Emphasize how you want to be.
The sure road to unhappiness is to try and change someone else.
Change your attitude toward negative people and keep your professionalism high.
Do not stand for abuse. Report it.
Few work environments are perfect but it’s the way we think of ourselves that matters most.
Let no person demean or dismiss your abilities.
The best way to overcome a toxic workplace is to see yourself clothed in Teflon and watching the negative stuff roll off of you.
