I work with a client who intimidates me greatly. I have anxiety before meetings with her. I feel like no matter how well I prepare, I always come off as unprepared because she will often ask questions that I struggle responding to. I’m so nervous that I often end up talking in circles. She has said that talking to me is “painful.” What can I do to become more confident when I communicate with her?

Relatively new to consulting. Is it just my firm or does 90%+ of firm developed “assets” and “accelerators” boil down to slideware that sounds great and may sell the work but then in practical application doesn’t actually help and often times hurts the delivery team? So in the end, the burden is on the lower level day to day team to BS to client and the partner who sold this amazing tool is nowhere to be found. Is this just the game?

When does it end? I feel like every day is so much effort to be happy. I struggle with depression and suicidal ideation, for years. Exercise, meditate, journal. I’m always looking to better myself, I have hobbies, side hustle. My mother told me I should be medicated—nothing against medication, I have taken in the past, just did not appreciate the comment, it was hurtful. People need empathy. Medication is not going to help me find fulfillment in my career, or to find a life partner.
