Struggling with my job and my purpose and self worth

Lots going on at work with 2 people quitting, new ones being hired. My co-worker wanted the manager position so I encouraged her to try for it. We have worked together for 3 years now and worked well together. She asked me if I would be ok with her being my boss. I said sure why not we have worked well together. The next thing out of her mouth set me back, she said because we won't be equals anymore. A fact which I already knew, but just figured was an unspoken fact. Shes 26 years old and she got the job.

I'm happy for her, but it has sure changed the dynamics there between us. I guess its true what they say about power. They promoted me to front counter sales,which is not a job I wanted, so I can't even get excited about it. I'm 50 years old and feeling like I'm not worth anything. I'm the oldest one at this shop and they let me know it on a regular basis. I want to apply elsewhere, but my age is definitely a factor. I just want to go away and not deal with people any more. I feel bitter and I just don't trust anyone any more. I know that Its not pleasing to God to live this way, but I don't know how to pull myself out of it. I just feel like I need some kind of hope for the future.
