Which is worse...

Being dismissed or not being acknowledged by a boss?

At this point I'm torn. Not being acknowledged means I can go about my business day to day, do my work an not be bothered. However in both instances it is almost like I don't exist on any level. It's actually very disturbing.

I'm used to being dismissed, there is a SVP here at the company that will pick up his cell phone when he's done with the conversation...dismissive. However that same VP will stop and acknowledge my presence if he sees me in the hall or simply around the building. (Point of fact...that SVP was the one that hired me.)

As I write this I'm become firmer in my opinion that not being acknowledged is worse than being dismissed. At least when you are dismissed that person acknowledged you in the first place to have that short conversation or exchange.

I feel lost...

Not sure why or for how long but I feel like it's been slowly creeping up on me. I feel lost!

Lost and Confused
That's a powerful statement to make and to admit to yourself. No one ever wants to feel that way. You hear people talking about their purpose, their path in life, where they are going and how they plan to get there. Never once do you hear someone say they are lost while making those kinds of declarations.

So how does one become lost? Well I'm not sure how it happens but it does. It could be from being 'stuck' at work, personal life, spiritual life...stagnant in any area I guess will do it to you. It could be more than one area however typically for me it's work life. I think that's what happened to me, stagnant at work. Normally I would buckle down, update my resume and start looking for another position. For some reason I can't seem to move forward with what I normally do. Even with the issues in the office I can't seem to put my finger on what has me feeling so lost.
Need to figure it out...that will be the only way to not be so lost anymore.
