This can be really discouraging and lead you to question yourself and your value.
Sometimes no matter how hard you work or how much you prepare, you still might not get what you want or what you deserve. Whether it’s not getting that promotion, an offer for your dream job or recognition at work, it’s hard not to take these kind of letdowns personally.
