I’m pretty depressed. I feel like I’m drowning and don’t really understand how to get help. I feel like I could easily disappear and only my husband would notice. I feel like a waste of space.

I watched the 60 minutes episode where they featured 2 kids and homeless with their dad living in a delivery truck in central florida and how they are now. We were like them, mom passed away and lived with our dad who suffered a mental disorder. practically we had to learn to survive, care for our dad and go to school. I was 10 yo back then and memories are still clear. truly education is a way out of poverty and there is always hope.

Got hit hard on my reviews. Feeling very low. I'm single, have no friends, don't like my job, oceans away from my aging parents, lost a family member recently, and have self imagine issues. I'm falling in a deep hole really fast. Should I just quit and try again?

This job has made me paranoid and full of anxiety. I feel like a shell of my former self and don’t know how to get it back.

I'm constantly stressed and demotivated for no apparent reason. Anyone else feel the same? What should I do? It's taking a toll of my health and my family life...

Let go at the beginning of the year from the firm. Have been searching for a job since then. Feel like my whole world and life is collapsing and that I won’t recover/cant see a way out of it. Can’t go a day without breaking down now.

Guys - i just want to be calm and not anxious and not worried about my career and what other people think of me. If I succeed I succeed if not then it is what it is.

Recently transitioned to a startup and my confidence has skyrocketed. Presenting, interviewing, making my point heard are SO much easier when I’m working with colleagues and not clients who I feel don’t want me there. For those who struggle with confidence, there is hope!

For those who do online therapy and live in a confined space with roommates/SO how do you find a space to talk privately with your therapist? Really want to give online therapy a try but really struggling to find a private space for such conversations in my apartment with WFH right now and all...

People who have cheated in their previous relationships, how did you come to realize the reason behind your behavior? A close friend confided in me that she has cheated in all her previous relationships and struggles to understand the reasoning behind it. She feels a lot of shame and is trying to understand why she does what she does.I have suggested therapy but she is not ready yet. How did you folks arrive at the root cause behind your behavior? Advice? Book suggestions that I can pass along?
