""I have also decided to be a family man rather than a company man, and this has hurt my success at work." That's a conflicted sentence if I ever heard one. "
This is not conflicted, it is reduntant. That's my bad. But I wanted it all. Now I know I can't have both, and you bring up a fantastic descrpition of where I appear to be. It is just hard to let go of 20 years of busting my (your descriptive word here)and then have some pimply-faced kid come in and tell the man that he did this and that, when I actually taught them by doing the task for them. And the company gives large entry-level salaried to attract young guns.
But your view is inciteful.
Hi, I am new to this forum. I was feeling very down from last friday, as for the past 3 years I have been working as Temp and going from one work place to another, and last Friday was a Christmas Party to which our department where I work was going. When I told them I am not coming, they were surprised. But I didn't want to go, because in my heart I feel I don't belong there.
I am sick and tired of all the changes and having to move around. I spoke to my boss and brought up this subject and told about having depression and anxiety. I was told that she will be looking into it. But I don't know!
