I was the lone dissent on an important committee vote today.

We don't do dissent well here. But I think I was right. And now I feel crappy partly because everyone else thinks I am wrong, partly because I wasn't able to convince them, partly because I feel like an alien here.

And I now need to hope that the rest of the committee was totally right. I'm not there yet, but I need to get myself there. And I need to do it without resorting to sugar this weekend.

  1. I didn't see this post when it first went up, or I would have said this: ((((Bardiac)))).

    Have been in that position and felt that crappy way and, actually, just revisited that feeling recently, so I feel you.

    It sucks.

    And it makes me mad too that having a different opinion is not often treated as professionally as we might expect in this "professional" environment.
