Its just life.
One can't always be in control of one's own circumstances or the company one keeps.
Just live and work with integrity and do what you need to do to earn a living and make your experience at work as pleasant as you can for yourself and others. Remember that most of our fundamental problems we have in life are largely internal.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
