coworker dislikes me

My coworker lady gives me a vibe that she detests me. She doesn't like to talk to me and she is pretty rude even when I try to be courteous, I think this is because I am a from different race and religion.

So... someone appears not to like you, and you immediately decide why.

Don't make a particular effort to get on with this co-worker, just concentrate on your job and be true to yourself.

Just know that in any workplace there is always somebody likes you and some dislikes you. And vice versa. Not everyone can get along with everyone. You cannot please everybody, and not everybody will please you.

The main purpose to come to work is to do your work well and productively for the company. Be professional, be mindful (pay attention to your job at each moment), do your best, and at the end of the day go home to your family and forget about work. Enjoy your loved ones at home, your hobbies and your friends out of the workplace.

I know it's easier said than done. But try to put it to practice. Don't get near the one who dislikes you or you dislike him/her. Just be professional when you need to discuss about work.

If you have a few good friends at work, that's a bonus. Be happy and be grateful.
