Your reputation is everything in working with others. How you treat those who are around you will reflect back to you. No matter how people treat you, you are the one who has to decide how to respond. Decide to set the tone instead of being overpowered by the influences in the environment. By quiet, when you catch yourself about to say something in which is going to damage, the image your portray to those who matter the most. This is small world and you never know where at some later point where you may encounter the same person.
