Need your advice

Hey y’all! Looking for some input, thought maybe you could help. I can’t go into a lot of detail as it is about work, but hopefully I can explain this decently.

I am working towards a slight shift in my career. To do this requires a certificate that I am studying for and some more well rounded experience. I have been working to move into a certain type of role in my company to further gain this experience and a few months back had an opportunity to get one. The hiring manager loved me and tried to make an offer but it got stopped in the system due to a technicality. I was absolutely heartbroken.

Earlier this week a similar position opened and my boss encouraged me to look into it. It does not have the same technicality in my way but might have a different one. My husband says I should go for it anyway. He thinks that since my boss recommended it that he would be able to help get my past the issue. I don’t think my boss has enough involvement in this case to make a difference though.

Here’s the biggest issue. I understand loosing out on a job because someone else is more qualified, or interviewed better, or is a better fit. But when I lost that one on a technicality I was devastated and wouldn’t leave my room for days. My BPD told me that I would never get ahead and should give up. I don’t know that I can face that kind of heartbreak again.

My husband thinks I have a much better shot at this one, and my boss thinks I can get it to. But I’m not so sure and fear is telling me to give up before I get hurt. What do you think?

    You need to go for it. I know it’s scary and yeah, you might not get it but not going for it is the same as letting your BPD win, and we don’t want that. If you don’t take the risk, you’ll never know. And just think, if it does go wrong, you’ve got through this before so you sure as hell can get through it again. X

    1. You hit the nail on the head, and certainly gave me a lot to think about! Though as I dwell on your advice it got my brain going on other opportunities that might be better but I’ve been too scared for. Thoughts to consider, but you’re right, I can’t let a disorder win.
