I recently applied for an internal job that I am more than qualified for. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the job, it went to another candidate that I believe was far less qualified. It isn’t the first time I was passed over and it has really affected my confidence. I love my job but now I’m worried that I am not rated by the company and I can’t stop dwelling on it. I am so hurt. What can I do to feel better?

To feel better, give yourself permission to identify and feel the emotions that are present. Name them, they need space to be acknowledged so that you can stop ruminating, and then let’s come at this from a solution-focused strategy.
