“Every time I actually try to take ownership of my tasks at work (which was an issue addressed in my 6 month review, and basically means that I need to make the decisions rather than deferring to others), one of my coworkers bypasses me and loops my supervisor in because they think I was mistaken/shouldn't have done X task the way I did. How do I win? This is why I constantly check in and am always so anxious to not ask before doing something. If this keeps happening I'll never gain confidence.”
