At my new work, I deal with very angry people. Often the anger is directed at me (sometimes for a mistake I made, sometimes for nothing I've done). I'm very thin-skinned and habitually let the anger hurt me in the moment -- dwelling on it later, how I could have done better, etc.

I'm working to observe such moments (goodness, and my own anger!), see how the angry person is suffering, and make my unconscious reactions conscious -- but any additional advice would be greatly appreciated. :)

The chapter on patience in Shantideva's Way of the Bodhisattva is something I go back to again and again in order to meditate and comprehend the nature of patience.

The lecture below also covers this part of the text in a wonderful and comprehensive way and can teach you how to comprehend and overcome suffering, hatred, and the afflictions.

Thank you, Almustafa. I've got Shantideva's book beside me to read (and re-read), and will read the lecture, too. :) I appreciate your guidance.
