5. Do Not Tolerate

Politics in workplaces don’t do any good to anyone and being silent about it and tolerating it is no good either.

There are people who fear that if they raise their voices against the wrongdoers of the office, they will be kicked out of the office.

But I want all of them to know one thing that a 9-5 job cannot be bigger than your self-respect.

If you feel there’s something wrong happening to you, talk to the higher folks of the organization directly, and if they also don’t take any action, you don’t have to stay in that place anymore.
