I've been trying to get out of customer service for a few years now ever since I got my bachelor's 6 years ago. I have a bachelor's in business administration. And Im getting my MBA in November. I feel like I've done everything I can to move ahead, but I feel blocked. I've tried sales, account analyst positions, operations, marking, digital marketing.

Like many people, I have been experiencing a roller coaster of anxiety in recent months. I’ve gotten it more under control by cutting down on the news I watch, and trying to not think about work after I shut down my computer. I have a dear friend who is also dealing with anxiety. When we talk, the discussion is always about how anxious she is about COVID, Civil Unrest, etc. And she wants to talk about work which I’m trying not to do as much. How to be a good friend and keep from spiraling?
