I made a mistake at work last week. It’s a mistake I wouldn’t have made even my first year in my career, and I have no explanation as to why I missed it this time. It has me questioning whether I am good at my job, whether I’m right for this industry. I know it sounds dramatic, but the boss I work for makes everything I huge deal so I’m constantly being told how disappointed he is. I can usually shake it off, knowing he’s making it bigger than it is and/or that I did nothing wrong. This time though I can admit I messed up so it’s hard not to question whether his apparent impression of me is right.
