I’m a long-time employee with an impeccable career who, in the heat of the moment, made a big mistake. My manager made a decision I didn’t agree with, and I picked it apart, thinking I knew better than they did. I even combatted the change he’d proposed–by finding other colleagues to complain and by challenging my boss himself in group meetings. In retrospect, I wasn’t helping, I was hurting the situation. I was the obstacle for others to navigate around, not him. A week later, I was fired. And rightfully so. My self-esteem and ego got ahead of me. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking -- I’ve just been really off lately. We all make mistakes and hope that by sharing this will help me at least own up to how I can make a change for the better. Thoughts? Have you ever been let go?
