Your best job can easily become depressing when you have a toxic colleague. Especially, when that person is your teammate or someone whom you encounter every day. The perfect example of this is Myra from Tula Pahate Re. She is constantly trying to get Isha Nimkar into trouble and tarnish her reputation. At times, Myra’s jealousy gets the worst out of her which is destructive to Isha and Vikrant’s relationship. Sadly, such office politics are fairly common at workplaces because of the competition to perform better.

If you have to experience this, then, here are ways to deal with your real-life ‘Myra’ and rise above the situation.
1. Confront them
As adults being in a professional environment, you have to understand this game of cat and mouse isn’t going to have a happy ending. You have to talk to them and lay out all the issues on the table. This will lead you to have better clarity of thought as you get to know their side of the story and explain yours.
2. Confide in your superiors
If the heart to heart chat doesn’t work, then you have to call in the big guns. Involve your superiors and explain the events happening in their team. Your boss can intervene and have a chat with them.
4. You are your own competition
No matter what, how tempting it is, you can’t be as vile as them. Keep focusing on your work and on achieving your targets. Like, Taylor Swift said, “Haters gonna hate, right?”.
5. Prioritise yourself
Your mental health is more important than anything else in the world. There is nothing worth ruining your mind’s stability. If you have done everything in your power to work things out with them, even after that the things aren’t improving, then don’t think twice before taking up a better opportunity. Everyone deserves to be treated nicely.
