Yep and I bounced back. Cant hold a good man down

Yes and it was such a blessing. Not only would I do the thing that got me fired again (draw the line re: personal time), but knew what to look out for with future employers.

Yes. Remember what you did wrong and don’t do it again. Then find a new job.

Yes. More people have than you realize but people don’t share it so openly. It’s not the end of the world even though it can feel like. I’ve been fired more than once, and I’m still kicking. Some issues w depression and anxiety can get to me and affected me really badly in a few jobs. But you do the best you can, you accept the outcome, let it go and forgive yourself, and move on to the next thing putting your best foot forward. There is always another opportunity out there, and a second chance. Hang in there. The key is not beating yourself up too much and realizing that you did not commit some cardinal sin that makes you unreedeemable or a total loser. You had a hiccup like everyone does at some point but now you get a little break to breathe and get your head back on before jumping back in, hopefully better than ever. Hang in there. It happens to a lot of us and it will be ok ❤️

Definition of an advertising creative: Someone who got lots of validation from parents for being clever and talented in school, and needed a career that allowed them to continue building their self worth through external validation only to realize that bosses (the new parents) seldom praise you so you look to greater validation through awards until you either get said awards and realize that it only leads to wanting more, or you get old enough to see through it all and are laid off.
