Been there, it is a bit of a mental manipulation and honestly they probably don’t know how to get it right so they just say that yours isn’t good. The main way is to roll off the projects. Something along the lines off, I don’t think this is a good fit for a project as you need someone who is more aligned to what you are looking dor

SC1 - yeah I’m trying to leave because I’m also facing passive aggressiveness and racism from teammates on this project. It’s stepping on eggshells every day working with these folks.

My team constantly pushes back. I’d ask yourself manager, “what does fix mean to you “; “what does something is good mean?” Share an example perhaps. It is your duty to fix it, it it is their duty to teach and he or she is unwilling to teach then you need to complain about it. If your firm doesn’t tolerate it then find a different firm.

Okay something kind of weird happened. Started a new project today with all new people. We met in person today and manager left for home after checkout around 5PM. Three Associates on my team were planning to get dinner, I said I was going to bail to go workout and eat at home. This girl screams at me in front of the whole floor “you are so fake!! you are not going to workout. you’re being fake.” I’m just standing there in shock like what? She’s like “what are you even going to do at the gym”…

Covid has been hard. March 2029- December 2020 I drank a lot to cope without realizing it. January- March I didn't realize I was depressed. March I came to terms with increase and ongoing suicidal ideation and needed help. I went into a intensive outpatient program (IOP) which has been super helpful. During the beginning of covid I drank every day and in a great deal. January it was a "dry" month which was hard the first week but overall great. March 2021 realized I'm clinically depressed.

On the weekend baby drinks from me and doesn’t need more milk. Baby is 10 months. I have a freezer stash but don’t want to reduce supply too much.
