On Gaslighting Yourself At Work

I feel this. I’ve been at my job for almost six years, which is about 3 times as long as I’ve worked at any other place. And for the most part, it’s just fine. I know what I’m doing, my immediate bosses think I’m great and I like most of what I do. But my Actual Boss has been making life hell over piddly crap for a lot of my friends and in the last year almost every single person I was friends with here has either left their job or the company completely. So then I wonder why I’m still here and if I should be looking for something better. But applying for jobs is such WORK and the thought of being the new girl again is just ugh. Additionally, a lot of things I used to be in charge of are being taken off my plate for another senior staff member, which on one hand is fine, but on the other hand, it’s like what do I even do here anymore? I dunno. I just feel the job ennui hard and am constantly wondering if I’m doing enough/better/up to standard and if anyone would actually let me know if I wasn’t.
