With great power comes ... a lot of anxiety, actually.

How much you're actually worth to the company

That would be bad business, says Vicki Salemi, career expert for Monster. It's up to you to know if you need to look for a different job that pays six figures, offers six weeks of paid vacation, and ice-cream-social Fridays.

What everybody else is getting

Comparison is the source of discontent, so it would be a lot easier for your boss if you and your colleagues didn't compare notes on salary and time off. But you should still do it anyway.

They're protecting you from a lot of bad shit

Ninety percent of the time, you're like, "Ugh. Get off my back, Moooooommmm." The remaining 10 percent of the time, you should be like, "Awwww. What did we do to deserve bosses?" Salemi says that if you've got a solid manager, she's probably shielding you from high-level politics, otherwise known as mad drama you don't want to get caught up in. Focus on your job and professional development, and let your boss go to bat for you.

They know that when you call in sick on a Monday, you're actually hungover...

Because they got too turnt over the weekend as well.

They feel like you have all the power

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. But really. In your exit interviews, you can totally destroy a former boss or at least earn them a stern talking-to from HR if it's their poor leadership that drove you to leave.

They suffer from impostor syndrome too

News flash: Nobody knows what she's doing, not even the person in charge of you. Isn't it reassuring that "WTF am I doing here?" doesn't necessarily diminish with seniority?

They know when you should move on before you do

But it's not really in their best interest to get all "BE FREE!" so they have to wait for you to come to that realization for yourself.

They have to please their bosses too

So the next time they make you do something disagreeable, suck it up. Or quit in a fit of pique/hand in your resignation to the real culprit.

They want you to like them

I mean, you can try.
