What sucks most about it is I’m still pretty new in my Accounting career but I have big ambitions and no family and very little friend support. First generation college grad and since I’m not pursuing doctor or lawyer track my family basically doesn’t know or understand what im doing so they see it as a waste of time. Currently studying for my CPA and it just gets lonely when you’re reaching for a goal no one understands

I spent 8+ years in agency new biz and increasingly felt like a cog in the capitalism wheel, working long hours for causes I didn’t really believe in. Although I enjoyed the thrill and collaboration, I was deeply missing the connection to purpose. So through a series of moves (AMA 👍), I now lead marketing for a sustainable forestry NGO. It is a huge relief.

And now I’m looking to hire a marketing manager! Perhaps one of you is interested in a similar switch? Long shot, but more info is below.

I feel like a struggle with “Black and White” thinking where if someone does something that makes me really upset, they became ‘bad’ in my eyes for a while. I.e at work, if we are in a super stressful situation and a coworker is upset or has a annoyed tone with me, I’ll automatically be avoiding or kinda worried to be around that coworker for a while/can’t focus around them properly until they show a diff mood. I also do this in my personal life. Anyone with similar experience/ways to help?

My parent is sick with dementia. I can tolerate high level of stress when I'm called names, sent to h... etc.. but I keep everything inside. It's been that way for a long while now. Today my cup of tolerance has overflown when I was giving my parent a bath. I was so angry that I was shaken and I forced my parent to bath... I yelled and said things I would never say otherwise. I know I'm wrong and it's a disease, but I just couldn't help it... now.. the work time comes... I couldn't concentrate... tears just flowing from my eyes. Which I totally deserve. I'm glad I was working from home today. It got to the point that I just don't want to see that anymore... I just don't want to wake up. I just want to escape of my thoughts and my feelings...

I just started listening to the podcast called “The Adult Chair” and it’s fantastic!! I started from the beginning. I highly recommend it and just wanted to share!
