What to answer..
More often than not, we try to answer wrong issues - if I pick a fight with someone senior at work, maybe I will think that I should leave my firm, because that's the easiest way out from the current uneasy situation. What we tend to avoid, in most of the cases, is to solve the problem from where it began - for instance, maybe I should either try and work around the problem (read, help the other person understand my concern), or else, if there're problems around the former, I should try and prove myself - not by leaving the place but by making sure that everyone gets to know what I am capable of! Leaving the place would be an extreme, which I should think of only if I see no respite at all.
It's not really a matter of what exactly it is that we are going to do, it is more so about what it is that we are trying to answer. And if that problem is that I am not getting my due, it might do me good to make sure that I get it, one way or the other.
Of course, easier said than done..
