i've been working for the same company straight out of college.. in 7 years, i've been promoted 4 times going on 5. i'm not into office politics and until i became supervisor, i used to want my colleagues to like me.. i got promoted to supervisor, and had to develop a thick skin quick! as a supervisor, i've worked my tail off, going above and beyond the call of duty, and have made a number of positive changes in the company - despite all the challenges i've faced both with my subordinates and colleagues. finally, my hard work is (once again) being recognized and i am about to get a promotion.. but my boss told me is that it includes even more responsibilities... i'm a bit upset that my hard work is being rewarded by even more work! i'm stretched out way too thin already as it is... truthfully, i don't know if i want to deal with more stress in my life. i actually started looking for another job - one that does not involve managing people but pays more than my current salary... in my interviews, they all had the same comment - i have all the skills that would make me a successful candidate, but i'm too overqualified. and because of the consistency of my promotion, they are worried that i may get bored easily! i remember thinking - "since when did competence become a weakness???" --- well, they actually offered me the job, but i freaked out so i turned it down. i've been kicking myself in the @$$ since... and now my current company is offering me a promotion - but i'm not as happy as i thought i should be... i was when i first heard the news - but over the weekend, i started freakin out and i'm not really sure why... arrrgghh!! i don't know what i'm babbling about or why i'm so down... but any words of encouragement or workds of wisdom would help thanks is advance!!!
