Well, that does suck. I'm very sorry.

SOmetimes in a situation like that I ask myself what a mentally healthy "normal" person would do (not that I'm saying *you* aren't, but I certainly wouldn't put *myself* in the mentally healthy category, although sometimes I can do a miraculous job of faking it).

I really do think that anyone would feel badly in your current situation. Probably a lot of them would catastrophize as well.

However, one thing they might do is have a talk with their boss about what qualities they were looking for in that position. Then inquire as to what training opportunities might be available to help you develop them.

(I know, it's an end run around "why didn't you offer it to me", but sometimes it's just best not hear that outloud, it also lets your boss know that you want to improve and advance).

In the process they might learn that the hiring of someome else had absolutely nothing to do with them personally, but that other factors were at play.

I hope you feel better tomorrow and get some rest over the weekend. And, if I may, I would like to borrow a page from your book and give one big sloppy cyber *slap* to your boss.

Take care
Seldom.
