There is a person in my life who is possessed of a great need to prove her importance. She picks at me and attempts to show how superior she is. Without fail, our encounters set my teeth on edge.
As angry as I get, I also feel pity. I know what it is to long to be recognized. That kind of deep insecurity is painful.
Perhaps that is why we are told to live the quiet life. When we are content to walk through out days without striving to be known or lauded, we are at peace.
