A wise person once told me that when faced with difficult situations such as the ones you describe, you have three options:

1. Learn to live with it
2. Lobby for change
3. Leave

Hi Scott,

When one looks at the term 'moving on', one will think, what exactly does moving on require me to do? It could be internal transfer of department, a new job, forgiveness or suppression. I would say forgiveness is the greatest option of them all (albeit hard to achieve) while suppression is the worst choice (because scientific research has shown that suppression can lead actually lead to health problems!).

What I suggest one to do in such situation be nice to the people who gets on your nerves. Although counter-intuitive, I believe in the norm of reciprocity that a good gesture will also be matched by another good one. :)
