Why Not Me?

By | Dear DPM, General | No Comments

Ugh, so I can’t stop thinking about this side job that I was up for and didn’t get. I can’t stop thinking about why I wasn’t picked!! I am pretty sure I know who wound up getting it and now I can’t stop thinking about how I measure up to that guy and what I should be doing differently. Whatever it is, I can’t seem to let it go. HELP.
