It's a crazy industry. No wonder it drives us crazy.

I’ve gotten to the final stage in interview process at 5 places now to be told no. First and second interviews at a bunch of other places too. Starting to really feel drained. So much work for nothing

I’m no good at everything I do. How do you keep going, knowing you are mediocre even when you work hard?

I was devastated when I realized I had to cut my twin sister and even my mom to some degree out of my life in order to have peace of mind. It makes me sad I feel better without their burdens. ☹️

For years, I’ve been asking myself if I’m anxious/sad because I’m anxious/sad. Or if it’s a result of spending the majority of my life at an agency. Lately, I’m confident it’s the latter. Anyone else?

Losing an account in the new year. Our VP told accounts to touch up our resume, to look out for yourself. As much as I try to go the diplomatic/finish strong route, I’m checked out /can’t concentrate.

I started a new job a month ago and I feel like I am doing absolutely nothing right. And I’m starting to really doubt myself and feel slightly defeated. Has anyone experienced this or have advice?

Any tips on managing depression? Any time I slip up, my brain makes me feel like it’s the end of the world (and the end of my career... but it never is)

Left an okay position at my previous agency to lead as an in-house strategic position. The stuff I'm being assigned isn't like anything that was shared in my interview. Feels like I'm dying inside.

Seeking benefit clarification - US Health Indursnce says “Employee cover starts frm $17.65 PCM w/ $400 per month contribution by employer”. What does this mean? Worried about mental health costs/srvcs

I’m getting asked about work at 2am. Feels like harassment at this point

What do you do when you don't feel supported in your job? All the higher ups were art directors so they favor them more, and when it comes to copy I feel like no one cares. So I feel stagnant...

K so. My bf just told me he is an atheist. I knew he wasn’t super religious, but our talks before made me think he atleast believed in some sort of afterlife. I know everyone has their own opinion..

I think caring is what led me to being so deeply depressed. Seems it just makes me vulnerable to being hurt or wrecked by what I care for. So...I should try not caring?

Hey guys, all jokes aside, how does everyone have a life besides work in this industry? Weekdays I work and sleep, and I’ve worked most weekends. I’ve canceled so many plans and haven’t seen friends..

Recently left a large agency without a plan after 1.5 years. Place was toxic and was sucking the life out of me. Been looking for a gig for two months and recruiters have asked why I’ve stayed...

It's been around two years of feeling like I'm failing all the time. When does this stop?
