Our expert says:
OK, you show a good ability to recognize unhelpful habits or traits in yourself, which is the essential first stage to improving on the situation. It sounds as though your reactions may be excessive, beyond what would be the most helpful or appropriate response to the behaviour of others, especially if they have been careless or thoughtless, rather than malicious.
It also sounds as though you may go beyond the commendable stage of standing up for yourself, towards being rigid, unprepared to face the fact that like any of us you might on occasion, be wrong ; and to be feeling unduly threatened by accepting that probability ( of ocasionally being wrong about something ).
These are personality traits, somewhat exaggerated to some extent, which, if you wisely would wish to modify them, should do well with psychotherapy, especially of the CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy form.
Except where the issues and individuals are unavoidably important to you, rather like the 'erase" option discussed by other readers, simply respond as one does when you discover that a TV film you tuned to is boring or irritating - change the channel
