Or in a leadership position? I'm seeking some perspective. I got promoted about 2 years ago when my boss asked me to step up as manager, against my better judgment. As an INFP and as a survivor of different forms of abuse, it's just a bad fit for me. I'm really coming a long way in changing my beliefs around not equating my power with abuse and needing to caretake for everyone...but I'm not there yet. This position is not a "stretch" for me; it's a "break". The stress is disrupting my sleep. I hate to potentially cave to my fears and hangups, but it's more important for me to be gentle with myself and just step down. I was happier in my old position as a lead and a trainer for the team - fits in better with my softer approach and my strengths. Luckily I think I can get my old job back...but not without a fuss. I'm sad to have to step down, but I'm happy with relief. Wondering what experiences others have had like this.

It wasn't until I was 16 or 17 that I really began to be...
