Maybe she’s feeling a bit threatened by how well you’re doing 😉 or it could be as simple as something like she tends to highy praise peoplewho are actively working in big projects to keep them working well but neglects the rest of the staff a little, different people have different managing styles.

I wouldnt stress unless you actually do get negative feedback.. if she’s not happy with you, there’s a pretty good chance she’ll let you know!

First things first you have feelings you are only human. But take the personal out of it, there is no reason to be thinking about your personal feelings/ your main focus should be on the professional. Instead you should address her ask her if she had any issues with your work.


It’s quite possible that your Boss is an ahole who enjoys playing employees againist each other, or if someone is doing a big projects she pays them speical attention, basically they are many reasons why she may be that way.


Go to work, do your best work, make sure your behind is covered and if you think there is an ulterior motive for her behaving that way be prepared to depend yourself if you have too.

@ShabbyChicBee:  My suggestion is to just give it a little time. I went through a similar situation at a previous job with a boss who i got along with REALLY well. She was passed up for a promotion and was extremely difficult to work with for a good couple of months and it felt very personal. After a few months she was back to normal and we’re still friends. Maybe something is going on that you’re not aware of, and its possible that you’re hyper-sensitive about it right now. Just go in, do the best you can every day, be kind and productive – she’ll come around! Maybe she feels bad that you put so much effort into something that’s not even being implemented for a while – could she be a little embarassed?

She may have received a lot of push back over the delays which weren’t fixed, and might possibly have been reprimanded over the shelving of such a high-profile project. It may not be your fault that the Flash didn’t work, but she may be disappointed that a work-around wasn’t achieved.

Like @Charliejeorge:  said. Just give it time. It’s ok that it makes you a bit sad but I would say that she just doesn’t have the energy to be so positive to everyone all the time, so she just picks whoever is most important at that time.
