As I write I'm feeling rather blue. It's funny how your day can be going just fine and then the slightest thing happens (in my case an email announcement from work) that can make your jaws clench, your heart sink and tears spring to your eyes. Well - its funny how that can happen to me - or rather just did.
I've been in a rut at work - my organization doesn't appreciate me and hasn't for the last year, despite my hard work and successes for the business. I was passed up for two promotions that were promised to me. I've had management turnover and feel really exploited. I know I should just be grateful to have a job right now seeing as many are unemployed, and I know I get paid relatively well to others, but not so when I compare my role to others in my org.
In this email I found out I got passed up for a promotion and it was instead given to someone I've considered a threat to me (and my relationship) on a personal level. I wonder if its a sign and frankly I feel like a real loser. I even helped this person get the job a long time back. Apparently I'm not experiencing good karma from my act of kindness.
Does anyone have any advice on how to think about this and turn my negative feelings that are making going into work everyday feel unbearable into positive ones that will drive the outcomes of what I'd like to attract to my life? I feel really stuck.
Thanks in advance,
