Does anyone want to chat about how pointless everything is? 😔

What’s to be discussed if everything is pointless? Discussion will be pointless anyway.


Sorry you feel that way, OP. I feel that way for days/weeks-long spells sometimes. It can be tough. You should find someone you know, or a therapist, to confide in and speak to about it


No. Your therapist might

It does feel like that. But just remember, it isn't.

For me, dating seems to be pointless before and during the pandemic. Every woman I have met this far reminds me somehow that I’m better off alone, but I try anyway to still meet a decent good woman.

When interviewing - either as the interviewer or interviewee - what of you think of the recommendation to say things like "What a great question!" or "I'm really glad you asked me that!" I personally find this to be false flattery. As an interviewer it turns me off. And, as an interviewee I try to focus on real answers to the question.

But, perhaps others have had success with this approach.


Looks like there’s a lot of hiring activity at McKinsey in the US. Any London based McKinsey folks who’re willing to chat / refer potentially?


If you are scheduled for 5 interviews for the loop. And each interviewer is testing 2 LPs, how many total stories are you conveying per interview?

Is it 2 stories per interview, 1 for each LP or 4 stories per interview, 2 for each LP?

Do the interviewers repeat the critical set LPs?

Latinx - help! We used this term in our diversity spotlight discussing Hispanic Heritage Month. One individual said that in English a group of Latinos would just be Latins to be gender neutral.

I got fed up with tax. The last few years, I noticed that I lost my belief/desire for this career due to the absurdity of it. The pandemic has just shown there's no need to make our lives easier. Government can pass massive and sudden reg changes and we should all be happy to play catch up in an abnormally stressful and agitated environment. Firms will be happy to continue working us to death as if we were just cogs in a machine.

Please...Wake me up when this all ends.


Working remotely. Can’t focus or get out of bed in the morning. On useless BD waiting to get into bschool so I can quit but nothing feels worth it.

How I sometimes wish I could cry and just finally be able to let it all out.

Not sure if it’s meds or a subconscious emotional suppression + stigma associated with men crying, but man! It’s been a long time since I cried, and it gets really frustrating at times because I want to cry but just am not able to.

Working with a therapist too but still not able to open up on this front, so to speak.


My firm is virtual - all work done remotely in home office unless on client site. Haven’t traveled since mid October. It’s driving me nuts. What do you recommend doing?


I just want to come here and say that I’m in a completely different mental space than I was a year ago and it feels wonderful. I’m not 100% “healed” but I’m feeling 10x better than I was last year. It sucked so badly, but I did the work to get over someone who completely broke me, and I feel content being on my own without feeling like I need a man to make me happy. I still have much more work to do, but I’m just really proud of myself for how far I’ve come. Also, meds help

This life is too much.


I have an amazing life and go through swings of huge confidence followed by self loathing

I assure you I'm not humble bragging but on the surface I have an awesome life. I'm 25 with High comp, attractive, good social life, fit, etc. and sometimes it feels like that and my self esteem and confidence are through the roof

But other times it feels like I'm a failure that's not doing enough. I see Forbes 30 under 30 about all these success stories from ppl in their 20s and I feel like crap

Anyone divorced with their ex even though they still care about them?

Work is slow , I’m over sleeping 💤 so I’m just need get on a better schedule ?

Last year, I went through a major depression/anxiety induced episode, blacked out on sedatives, and went missing for several hours.

I was found safe and sound, and I have come a really long way since. What I am still struggling with is “forgiving myself”, so to speak.

For the pain, worry and stress I caused to my family and friends. They have all been amazing about it. But in the background, this nags at me every day.

Any and all suggestions on how to “forgive myself and move on”?🙏
