Big project, 2 SMs, the other SM is such so insecure that it’s hilarious. Tried to get me rolled off by bad mouthing me. Some real petty house of cards stuff everyday with this person. PPMDs, advice?

Agree with what the above posters have said. Also, it is a long game, don’t let one engagement define you!

Rise above. Be kind, mind your own business, and don’t talk shit about anyone - be the bigger person. It’s supposed to be a job, so focus on just that: your quality of work and the job.

I have this feeling of anxiety always running in the background. Any advise to cope with it? 😔 I tried meditation, which helps - but only at the time I’m doing it. The anxiety comes back not long after. It’s not fun to feel like I’m on overdrive all the time. I’m unable to concentrate both on the job, and outside of that as well. Anxiety is situational mainly due to a project that’s toxic. Can’t leave as leadership isn’t letting me roll off for now.

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
