Had a slide early in the week, bad bout of anxiety and the darkness reached for me hard. But I feel that I actually escaped it this time. I may not win all these battles but, as long as I don’t lose the war, I’ll keep fighting.

So many things to do… tired 😣

Just discovered ‘The Tapping Solution’ by Nick Ortner this past week. Seems interesting. Been reading about it online and was expecting most people to say Tapping is mumbo jumbo nonsense, but a lot of people swear by it.
I’m willing to give it a try. Have any of you tried it? If so, how have your experiences been? There are a bunch of YouTube videos on it.

Anxious about an upcoming trip. Finding it to handle a self centered friend who complains a lot.

Barely hanging on.

Pretty rough, have been stuck in a rut for a few months and feeling increasingly anxious about work each week. Reaching out to my old therapist this week but seriously feel like I can never find balance with work and life.

I'm on day 4 of a 10-day road trip vacation and feel like I am rediscovering myself. It's been too long. Don't forget to take a break and love your non-work self.

A mix of meh and yay... vacation time before joining a new team (feeling so much better now that I’m leaving my toxic manager and one specific person in the team after two years of struggling), but still struggling with the breakup and everything else after 7 months... still on antidepressant and is messing up with my mood and body

This has been a tough last couple days and I wish I could fast forward to a time in my life when I am happy again

This week has been ridiculous. Not sure if it’s PMS or what but I’m short fused and snappy at everyone

I am burning out. My manager forgot her password for a program and blamed me. She said: how do you dare to change my password. I just have access to her account not her personal email. To change a password you need an email and a confirmation code because I am an average person, not a hacker. If I was a hacker I would have used that skill to do something better that change her password or look into her things tbh. I cannot stand her, she is constantly attacking me and seriously ruining my life.

I’m going to be visiting the same country/city as an ex soon and reached out to them about possibly meeting up after nearly three years since the breakup. They never replied, not even a message back declining the offer. There was no cheating or anything bad to cause the breakup but because of emotions, things did end a little messy. My hopes were not to rekindle anything but I can’t help but feel a little upset that they couldn’t even bother a polite message back to decline.

Hi all,

In the summer of 2021 I finished my BBA and started working since then. As a personal achievement, I would like to do a master's degree as well (although I am not sure in what). Since master's degrees are in general quite an expensive step to take, I was thinking of asking my company to sponsor me.

When it comes to trainings my company reimburses them, but I have to pay upfront. What are you experiences with sponsoring/masters while working? And do you have any tips?

Cheers

Ive always struggled my whole life because I lack self confidence. My parents (immigrants) were strict and didn’t let me grow / express my true self as they had their own expectations of how I would become as a person. I’ve always had issues with friendships when I was younger and still do now. I’m sad and frustrated of who I am and why I’m lacking so much confidence. It’s funny because some people (family and other) are proud of me and take me as an example (continued)
