Been passed over for promotion twice before and this year was the 3rd time. Luckily, I got it. Was in a dark space since I’m single, there’s covid and firm said “may not promote bc of covid” so went to therapy also because, single and cheated. Mentioned to coach(counselor) that I was nervous and anxious and had to take therapy. He said I should learn not to take things to heart. Ever since, started regretting mentioning about therapy. Should I have handled this a different way?

I feel like I’m playing out a role that my family/friends want me to play. Ex: Wanting to get a promotion for this job that I don’t care about, creating dating profiles to meet guys even though I have no interest in being in a relationship, going out to dinner/drinks with friends and just sitting there completely empty and detached. Most importantly, I feel as though I’m only “sticking around” because my fam/friends say they care about me. I used to have hope, but now it all seems pointless.
I was told a promotion was in the works, but that was months ago. I’ve checked in a few times and was told they’re still working on it. When it finally does happen, do I ask for them to backdate it?

I’ve been struggling with depression/anxiety for the past 3 months. I recently got a promotion, which should be something to celebrate/be happy about, but I feel like I am not capable and it’s making my anxiety insane. I feel like crying every day. I lack motivation. I’ve been seeing a therapist, exercising, and started taking antidepressants 10 days ago. I’m wondering if anyone has been able to overcome depression, and what they did? I’m lacking hope for improvement. Thanks for listening
