In my case it was a co-worker who had been working for the company much longer than I had. My work ethics and her work ethics were worlds apart. At work I am all business; her on the other hand would leave work for others when it came time for her to leave, out the door she went. https://www.Inc.com
Hate the hate
The bigger the hate is the harder it is to stay professional. Hating a co-worker does nothing to the co-worker. On the other hand hate is like a cancer, it will consume me. Once I realize that it is not my job to judge her work ethics, it frees me to let go of the stress and do my job more professionally. It could be this person is not even aware of the fact I hate her.
If I take a moment and think about why I cannot get along with this co-worker then I really do not hate the co-worker, it is what the co-worker does that I dislike. I do not like “lazy” people. Why is it that I hate this co-worker? To understand this I have to look deep into myself. Do I hate this co-worker because she will not stay over and leaves as soon as it is time for her to go home? If I dig deeper maybe she leaves, not because she is selfish but because she has to be home to take over the care of a sick parent. On the other hand I see myself in what I perceived to be bad work ethics and I wish I could be that same way. Maybe hating this co-worker is easier than liking her because she is caring for an aging parent and my parent has passed away; therefore, I do not have the same opportunity.
Getting to know
Once I have understood myself and my own feeling I am free to get to know my co-worker and that makes working on the job more interesting than hating another person for the wrong reasons.
Setting a side hating also makes my life much more enjoyable and the job more pleasant for all.
