My secret wish is that I learn to stay quiet when other, higher ranking, employees are on the call. Every time I try to add the 2 bits I was brought for gets summarily blown off because did not originate from the Trusted Few. Setting Teams such that I will always be on mute unless asked specific question. No more jumping in to help - b/c the Fantastic Four have dibbs.

I always feel so unheard as a junior - even from execs who seemingly want everyone’s participation.


Yah this is the constant battle. Best is when they then ask, why didn’t you speak up


Is this on a call with the client? If no, then SPEAK UP🤦‍♂️ and make them look st***d. If it’s on a call with the client send an email internally after the meeting with an explanation. DM me if you need help.


K1,🐱 are strong AF. Your mother squirt you out of hers.


I'm on the same boat. I was so eager to help but then I realized that the exec, while kept asking for everyone's inputs, only followed up with ideas from a few others. It hurt at first because I was the SME and I could tell right away where their discussion would head for.
Now I just mute myself in those calls and work on other tasks. Not my project anyway.




And I’m young by most standards btw...just an early principal


This has happened to me. With emails. It’s so intentional it hurts.

Most people only want to hear their ideas validated. So maybe feed it to them.

Eagerness makes you seem junior and too available (Scarcity) and thus gives them more reason to discount your thoughts.

Additional Posts in Confession

Regardless of what you thought of Trump, now it comes out that the “Steele Dossier” and it’s claims have been debunked. The sources behind it arrested by the FBI for lying about their connections to the Clintons. Does anyone still believe this narrative that the media was hyperventilating about 2017-2020? Several news outlets like Washington Post, USAtoday, Axios have been “slowly coming around” on this.

Again, just focusing on journalistic integrity here and not the former president.


I’m retrospect, my dog didn’t like her. That should have the confirmation we weren’t compatible


I work from home and my spouse goes to school online full time. Someone is always home all the time and yet we still have to put baby in daycare because we can’t watch her while working or studying. It feels so bad and the parent guilt is killer.


Not so much a confession. How the heck do you cope losing a significant other connection?

No longer interacting with that one person everyday, understanding each others thoughts and habits, sharing passing thoughts, excitements life etc. It has been months but there is no replacement, very isolating. 😫😫

Just finished my last day of work at my job!


I'm 67 and been solo for almost 30 yrs. Hubby is retiring next month.I've way cut back on my work- no paralegal anymore but insurance still costs about $3800. Yesterday, I received my 2d unsolicited job offer for a position I would have jumped at 6 months ago. Hubby said to go for it if I want, but we haven't done anything but work for decades. I do not seem to have the oompf- maybe I need a break. What is going on now- 2 super job offers in 2 months? Anyone else seeing this happen?
