I've been working at my job for a while now and I was recently passed up for a promotion. My co-worker who just started is getting the promotion instead. I'm not sure how to deal with this and I don't want to seem like a sore loser.

It can be really tough to deal with feeling like you deserve something that someone else is getting. In this situation, it's important to stay positive and remember that there will be other opportunities for you down the road. Maybe you can talk to your boss about why you feel like you deserved the promotion and see if they have any feedback for you.

Try not to dwell on the situation too much and stay positive!
