Should I be worried?


User: TheNerdyWorkoholic - 09 August 2017 03:59

First off, I constantly over-think, so I'm here for experienced perspectives, before I combust!

I'm currently working on my Masters Thesis. Long story short, I love research and decided to approach a supervisor, before I was assigned to someone I wouldn't be completely compatible with. The supervisor I approached, agreed and all was well.

The issue here is, it has always been me, being proactive and him being at the receiving end. I didn't pay much attention to it in the beginning because I knew I had to go the extra mile, until my latest meeting with him this Monday, where he said he was reviewing my weekly work and after a while got "distracted".

I was a bit disappointed with that, and I feel very alone. Don't mistake it however, because I work well independently and this is MY idea, but I still expected him to put in his bit.

In sum, I think I just need to hear whether I'm over-thinking and my thesis is doing me in, or I have a legit reason to be concerned.

Much thanks,

You're expecting too much and overthinking it. The supervisor is just making a passing comment and you're reading too much into it, plus no one is going to be as enthusiastic about your work as you.

Agree with ToL, you are completely over-reacting.
Start worrying when your supervisor starts criticising your work.
