Am I anxiously overthinking


Am I anxiously over thinking in.? 

have worked at my current workplace for 3 years. I enjoy my work.

The company has two main departments,as as well as accounts department and HR department.

When I first started the job,the the job was general administrator, so iI did a bit of everything and didn’t work for a particular department (the company is all in the same building). Then after six months I was approached by one of the departments' supervisors, asking if i would like to do the role of project coordinator working within one of the main departments.

I did this role for around a year. my My appraisal was then scheduled, to which I mentioned that I would like the opportunity to become office manager, which would mean i worked inbetween the two main departments. My boss thought it a good idea and said that imI'm a good worker, always got work done on time, never had any complaints etc about me, and not long after I was offered the position. I think I did a good job with it.

During this time my old supervisor and boss had asked me to help out a little bit, which i was happy to do. This was doing some filing once a day, which took about 10 minutes to do, and also scanning of previous contract files,. Yes, this task will take time, but not so that I couldn't do my main job duties.

A few weeks ago,out out of the blue,my my boss came to me and in passing said, as I am doing more work for the department that I use to work in, then my boss wanted to make one of my colleagues office manager. My colleague works for the other main department to me.

After this I was very taken a back and now I am over thinking-thinking things and becoming anxious in the fact that my boss told me in such a casual way. Also it wasn't mentioned what my job role will now be,or my duties This has now made me think things such as, does this mean I will be dismissed or laid off...all of all the bad things, worst case scenario.

My boss is currently on holiday for a week, which doesn't do anything for me, except leave me with anxiousness.

What do you make of and think of the situation -– am I anxiously overthinkin
