So I started to wonder this. My entire life I was the assistant and expected to fix everything but never considered in charge. I was always Held to a ridiculously high standard. Everyone thinks of perfect so any slight mistake is treated like the worst possible crime. I live up to that as I am very methodical, and calculated. However it seems my purpose is to serve others to my own detriment. I realized I have no choice. Now I was trying to get a promotion at work recently. Was told I was the perfect candidate, all my evaluations were perfect. Yet they said they wouldn't pick me. They said they wanted to develop a candidate with less skills and potential and that I was already skilled enough. Along with that I was still expected to do extra but was punished later for even considering to ask for a promotion in the first place and later moved to a different team. I think some people are meant to succeed but some of us are just servants.
