Is everything going wrong and you're left wondering why? Only thing I've found helpful is to just keep pushing forward. I might be suck for the time being but you gotta keep pushing.

Stop listening to other people’s opinion or ignoring the shit around us is a start

Meditation helped me with this feeling. There is a particular 'hollow and empty' meditation where suddenly it just clicked that its only me against me - no one else really has time to worry about anyone other than themselves.
Holding onto that feeling is quite another task though - need to keep pushing each day.

I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?

If a company offers free session with mental counselors and therapists as benefits, do you think this would be an indicative that the work can be bad for you?
