Penalizing Brilliance

Posted: July 28, 2013 in personal

Warning: RANT coming up… You have been warned.

I am good at what I do.  There’s no BS about that.  I am just stating a fact.

A few months ago, I had been thrust into an enormous project of which I have no experience of. I am almost surely under qualified for it too.  I said no of course. But to refuse was not acceptable.

I gave it my best, all I’ve got. And because of it, I shone like a big, bright star on the darkest night.

Then, there came the time for big changes in the organization. People were being transferred from one project to another.  Except me.  They don’t wanna touch me.  Despite and in spite of requests, which eventually turned to protests, to be relegated to another project where I know I will be better at.  They just wouldn’t touch me.

Now, I am miserable.  I am stuck in a project that I don’t like, longing for another project that I can’t have.  This is punishment akin to death penalty. Fuck brilliance.  I don’t wanna shine no more.
