why do we need to protect ourselves from the others?
This tendency begins with the superficial notion that we are separate from the others. having accepted this mistaken notion we distance ourselves from them. This distance produces misconceptions and then fear. This sets up a vicious cycle of fear and suspicion. building a protective shell is then the wise thing to do.
How do we get out of this trap?
If for a change we look inwards at the effect this defensive strategy has on us, we will realise the enormous damage it is causing our wellness. Removing or dismantling the shell then becomes the obvious wise thing to do.
We then set ourselves free.

My "boss" lives in anger. What you say, I see with her. Monday thru Friday, I go to work to lavish her with love and compassion in hope to penetrate her protective shell. I have to give her to God.

I am glad to know that you're trying to relate to her anger with emapthy. I know it will take time for her to change herself. Patience and compassion are the two wings of the bird of healing.We try our best with God's blessings. We need to raise the sails for the grace of the Divine to help us.
