RSD is real but in my experience is resolved with greater self awareness. If your boss sabotages you that’s his flaw not yours. Politely let him know that you know what he did and focus on your next goal for the day. Also, watch how your feelings develop from some really baseless thoughts. You claim he set you up because others see you as an easy target, there are atleast three things in this statement that are probably false. Just saying.
The emotion comes really fast but it’s your choice to stay there or not. 1) assess the thoughts behind the emotion and 2) give your brain something more productive to worry about like hitting a challenging work goal within the next hour.
