Pressure and Perfectionism and anxiety?

I have a huge problem with putting pressure on myself trying to meet everyones expectations and wanting everone to like me. I see a therapist about this, and it has severely affected me at work.
If anyone is slightly rude to me it crushes me and sends me into a spiral of anxiety and depression from self doubt.
I don;t know how to control it!

anyone else have these problems relating to anxiety?

Do you meditate?  If not, it's something I urge you give a good try at.  I think it would eventually restore a healthy perspective.
