You try your best to influence them in the right direction, but don't sacrifice yourself for that one person who put themselves in the situation they find themselves in. Sexist, racist, ageist, homophobic... You name it and you will find it in the business world. The trick is to build up that exoskeleton that won't allow their negativity to penetrate. The best way I have found to seal this shell of sorts is to fill my life with the joy of my family. So long as I have their love on the inside, I could give a fuck less about the ignorant, uneducated pessimists surrounding me.
