Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about being corrected: I felt very insecure and ashamed. I am still in my teens while my coworkers are in the 30s.
I raised my voice at work yesterday morning. After lunch, everything seemed all right. I didn’t even notice it, but now that I realized it, I feel awful and embarrassed. A coworker/mentor/boss was speaking to me about a task that I worked very hard on. It appears that there were mistakes that I overlooked. However, that person started to question me about what I was doing wrong and then, tuning me out, had me rework the problem that could have been fixed easily by changing the format. That person was also stressed over something. I felt very insecure and ashamed. I am still in my teens while my coworkers are in the 30s. I feel as if I’m not good enough.What should I do? I know I’m in the wrong, but should I let it go?
