Sucking at PM and just hating it now

Tags: mental

I’ve been in the PM role for 10 years now (and in dev/design/production 10 years prior).

I seem to really suck at it and don’t seem to find great managers or mentors to help me improve. I figure I’m on my own and I must do the best I can. But I really hate it. I hate the conflict, I hate the pressure, I hate being a punching bag, and I hate having to constantly mediate. Hell I even hate having to come up with a roadmap because by the time I deal with all of this mental overload of crap I just don’t have the mental bandwidth to be creative. I have too much anxiety and stress disorder going on and I need to change it.

Some of the skills I’ve picked up along the way include product design, analytics, understanding customer pain points. What kinds of job opps should I possibly investigate so I’m less in the crossfire and more of an individual contributor? I could even consider jumping back into development but I feel at my age and competing with folks younger than me that I don’t have a chance. Advice would be appreciated.
