I'm having a major problem and it's making me feel like I want to quit my job. Seems like everytime I speak or ask questions, the colleague I assist has a major problem with it. She immediatly jumps on the first thing she disagrees with or if I've inadvertently said something wrong. She is quick to correct me like I've done the worst thing in the world when materially, I have'nt. Sometimes when I'm speaking to her, she turns away before I've finished my sentance. She never shows appreciation for the assistance I give her. I'm getting sick of: "you should have did this, you should have did that..." even when I don't think it's entirely my fault. On one hand she says I can ask her any questions, and on the other she dismisses me like I should know the answer already. Then when I think for myself (ie, not bother her with what I think are silly questions), I get grilled for not asking her first. So now I'm too afraid to say anything to her. She's nicer to everyone else. In fact, I thought she was a lovely person until I started working with her. Now I know I'm sounding like a crybaby but it's really affecting my morale. I seize up whenever she attacks me or dimisses me. I think she's trying to teach me but I just feel awful at the end of the day. I'm starting to hate going to work. How do I learn not to take things personally? It's important that I get along with her so I can enjoy my job and further my career down the track. Please help!
