4 reasons your co-workers aren’t your biggest fans

Nobody in your office likes you and you’re wondering why. You’re not arrogant or a big fat liar. You aren’t rude and you don’t act inappropriately. You’re not controlling or a brown-noser, and you’re not a jerk. Still stumped? Here is why nobody likes you.

You’re too moody: Are your coworkers taking a risk every time they talk to you? Do they call you Mr. Grumpy Pants? If so, those mood swings are probably the cause of your unpopularity. Try to be cool when you’re at the office. If coworkers know what to expect when you’re around, they may be more likely to let you in.

You’re a pessimist: Stop being Negative Nancy. If you’re always complaining, you’re going to bring everyone around you down. Your coworkers have been constantly subjected to your negativity, and now they’ve learned to avoid you at all costs. See the glass as half-full for once.

You’re a gossip: If you’re constantly talking about coworkers behind their backs, they’re going to find out. Once you’ve been labeled the office gossip, people are going to stop telling you things. If you’ve been shut out of office conversations, maybe this is why.

You’re not reliable: Nobody likes having to pick up your slack. Pull your own weight and be someone your coworkers can count on. Don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep. If you say you’re going to do something, you’d better do it.
