Can’t stand girl at work
Northern Ireland's number one agony aunt Fiona answers your problems
Dear Fiona, I absolutely can’t stand a girl I work with and I think she has a mental problem. Nobody likes her and it's not just me.
We’re all in shock constantly at the things she does and says. Why are some people so deluded?
Everyone has a healthy level of narcissism. It becomes problematic though when someone has an unrealistically inflated self image. They seem oblivious to the responses of others and have absolutely no self-awareness.
However, it’s more to be pitied than scorned as this is usually a defence mechanism to hide insecurities.
