At work today, I asked if I could take on a new assignment. It's not something I usually work on but I know the person who usually does it is swamped and could use the help. Plus she's my friend and I know I wouldn't be stepping on anybody's toes. She'd be grateful for the help. So I sent an email to two of the managers at 3pm asking if I could try my hand at this new project and didn't get a response back before I left.
I know I shouldn't have expected an immediate response, but now I have all these doubts like:
Maybe they don't think I can handle it and their just trying to think of a nice way to tell me no. So I feel silly and embarrassed for even asking.
I hate that I still doubt myself so much. I look at the jobs that are out there and think "There's no way I could do that!" or "I don't think I'd be qualified for that." Which is just stupid. I have 4 college degrees and finished by MBA when I was 23. I know I'm a smart person and have never failed at any job. But I feel like I'm so unqualified.
