Mean Dude at Work

C Someone said words at work
T He is so rude, he is undermining my judgment, he thinks he is more important and better than me
F Anger, sadness , shame
A Defend myself, tell others about situation
R Becomes a big drama taken higher up

How can I change this to benefit me, or do I even need to change it? Do I just sit with the negative emotions this has evoked and work through them. It doesn’t feel good either way.
