Q: Hi Allana, I am a 37 year old male and I work with someone who is infuriating on a regular basis. We’re equals, yet he feels the need to constantly speak to me in this awful, condescending manner. He tells me he hates how I answer the phone. He repeats things several times as I am too dumb to understand it. And on more than one occasion he has asked me why they even hired me in the first place. I have been dealing with this for almost a year and I’m about to snap. How do I keep from decking this one guy one day?
A: While you may hate the sound of it, this individual is your spiritual teacher. Yes, people who act like that have insecurities they are trying to hide from the rest of the world.
