Any book recommendations for managing post grad depression? I am really upset seeing myself losing friends and then having a hard time navigating full time working life during a global pandemic. Or any advice is appreciated!

Maybe instead of a book, therapy would be the one I’d recommend.
Consider your therapy sessions a chapter every time - it’s transformative and it’ll give your coping skills.

That was always me too, OP. But I think it can be helpful to talk to someone’s who’s job it is to listen especially when you are young and working to develop yourself. I’m using EAP sessions because I’m having some minor anxiety about turning 30. It’s not debilitating in any way, but talking to someone has helped me focus more on me and helped keep me accountable. There’s such a stigma about therapy, but leaving undergrad and going thro this phase was hard for most ppl, and isn’t insignificant. And if it’s free, might as well try it out.

I would second the therapy recommendation. I struggled after college and would jokingly tell friends I was having a quarter life crisis. Now, at 30, I’m struggling with the feelings that I tried to push away during that time rather than addressing them head on. I think therapy would have really helped me navigate.

Definitely echo looking into therapy, even if just used as a transitional tool! My first 2 years after graduating were retrospectively really rough—I don’t even think I realized how off I was until things started to get better and I felt more like myself again. In addition to therapy, I would also try to experiment with picking up a solo hobby that adds structure and small joy to your day. Incorporating cooking/meal planning and running into my week and learning about personal finance was helpful for me because I chose to frame these acts as caring for myself like I would want a friend to be concerned about me.

I’m in a small-ish office. managing partner of my office & my practice group leader said I could work from home some days per week. Most people seem fine with it except one partner (who has most of the work to give out). Should I stick to my guns and continue to work from home on my days or should I give in to this partners’ passive aggressive side comments generally about people “not actually working” even though I’ve maintained my hours and have gotten every assignment done and done well?

Don’t know how to explain it yet, but I wanted to come here and vent. Anyone else experience this?

Who are these people responding to surveys asking for full time return to office? Seems like every firm is now citing these surveys and how in office work leads to better productivity and mental health? No, spending 1 - 2 hours a day commuting, waking up earlier and sleeping early, displacing actual mental health boosting events like the gym with being stuck in traffic, and additional work that comes from being in the office does NOT boost my mental health.
