I am looking for an advice from those more experienced than I am.
In my current team I was working in a project for quite a long time, mainly doing maintenance (unfortunately). I believed that I had a very good relationship with my manager and I believed all was fine. I had told him that I was unhappy with the long time spend doing maintenance tasks and he told me that this would change with a new project coming.
When the new project came up, it was passed to someone else. From what I can tell, this was done on purpose, but due to the manager's lack of action in informing me and assigning it to me directly it was "picked up" by another colleague. I never received feedback about any problem with my skills or that he does not trust me or anything else.
I don't really know how to handle the situation.
I am angry and feel wronged. I would like to move to another team and stop working with this manager. But these are just my feelings and I want to be professional. I don't know if it makes sense to complain to him, confront him or ask his manager to move me elsewhere.
Basically I would like to know what is the most professional way to handle this that would benefit me in the long run as well.
Most important I would like to stop feeling like a fool.
