A few months back, in the office, I had to join a huge team to complete a big project. As the work demanded, I had to interact with everybody, including the person I didn’t like. I can write down plenty of reasons for not liking the vibes she spreads. First of all, she is quite younger than me, thus, thinks that she gets the liberty to create all of the problems. Being in a lower position, she tries to prove her point every time there is a discussion. This does not make her appear as somebody who is contributing but as someone bossy. Secondly, she is also irresponsible as most of the time she chooses to stay absent from important discussions. Even if she is there, she hardly pays attention. Despite this being a group project, I have to complete a major portion of the assigned tasks.

Since this project was extremely important for our company, we could not handle any type of defeat. Thus, I didn’t have a choice than to deal with her nuisances. Although I would have preferred to do everything alone, however, refusing to be a team’s part would have impacted my performance. Therefore, knowing her behaviour, I had to swallow my pride and remain patient. A lot of arguments and fights happened, but we managed to complete everything on time.

With this experience, I got to learn that people can work together, even if they get on each other’s nerves. All it requires is a bit of patience from one person and a lot of compromises to achieve a common objective.
