The new concerns you have about your career aren't going away any time soon, so you have to deal with them like the intelligent person you are. It's time to have a conversation with someone you trust -- and it doesn't have to be someone who is intimately involved with what you do on a daily basis. You just need a sounding board -- someone you know will tell you the truth, no matter how ugly it may be. Avoid talking to anyone who is too close to your situation. They might hold back on you.
