I’m 40 years old and am having an issue with a coworker. I work as a project manager at a tech company and have been with them practically since the beginning. A few years ago, we hired someone as a part time receptionist and I really liked him. He was a solid kid and seemed like he had potential despite never graduating from college. I took him under my wing and he steadily took on more responsibilities and better job titles. In the last couple of years, our company has done really well and we’ve moved past the stage where we would be considered a startup. We had a leadership transition and my friend has actually been promoted above me and joined a more senior leadership team. I admit, I have some jealousy about this, but even worse - I was up for a promotion recently and didn’t get it! I feel like I’ve helped this kid out for so long, the least he could do is look out for me too. My girlfriend thinks I should just let it go. Am I in the wrong here?
