The atmosphere at work is heavy and you're just waiting for the moment to go home? Instead of participating in the gossip and encouraging a heavy vibe to deal with, avoid getting yourself into hot water and instead focus on the positive. You could invite your colleagues to a group lunch to bond with them and get to know them. Your colleagues can thus be your allies rather than your enemies.
You don't have to spend your weekends cooking for Meals on Wheels to be socially engaged. Sort out toys, books, and clothes and take them to church basements or the library for the benefit of those in need. A colleague hasdifficulty making ends meet?
