I have definitely become a better person. Now I need to aim higher and become the best person I can be.

I have a decision to make. One of my co-workers (who has a history of being rude to me) agreed to do a minor project for the department. Yesterday when the going got a little tiny bit rough, she literally dumped it on me by leaving in on the floor in my office and refusing to complete it.
A small part of me says that I should just finish it and be glad that she did the first part. That seems like the nice and right thing to do. However, the last task she agreed to complete, she dumped on another department member. There are a few other large tasks that she has committed to complete during the past six months and she has made every single one of them difficult on the rest of the members of the department. When the other department members and I have tasks to do, she wants no part of them. When she has something to do, we all need to help her and typically end up finishing it for her.
So should I be the “better” person and finish it, should I be the “better” person and tell her that she needs to finish her part or should I be the “better” person and say do more shared tasks… do your own work?
What should I do?
Since the April 22nd meeting, I have made an effort to be positive with my difficult coworker. Amazingly enough, she has been pleasant and even delightful at times. I am being the best version of myself and so is she…. and it is working. I have been trying to make this work for 10 years… and now it finally is. I am proud of myself and I hope that we both can keep this up!
