Our expert says:
It's important to read this incident as indicating an error and a weakness on the part of your boss, not of you, yourself. PLEASE don't catastrophize this event, which I am certain is far less significant and earth-moving for everyone else than it has been for you. Don't resign. They clearly think a lot of you, and good grief, given your great skill at self-criticism, they can't even compete in thinking less of you than you do yourself.
Seeing a practical counsellor / therapist of the CBT persuasion, will help you to get things into more confortable proportion, and to enhance your self-esteem and self-confidence.
You will, with a litle help, get well beyond this, strengthen yourself without losing all the best bits of you, and learn to enjoy the job again quite soon, and to be les harsh on yourself
