“I'm so angry at work. At my boss. At myself too. I'm so angry and embarrassed and ashamed that I opened up to him and it came back and bit me in the ass, just like opening up always does to me. I shouldn't have thought of him as my friend, and it cost me a shot at a full time position which he knew I wanted... the new guy, who's only been here 5 months, got it instead. I can't look look at anyone in my department in the eye. I should quit but I can't risk the loss of income.”
