Depression/Anxiety Talk

I struggle with anxiety and self loathing, and whenever I feel like I’ve upset someone or they don’t like me, I spiral into self hatred and self doubt. Anyone else experience this and have tips?

Same. I know it’s not the advice that everyone wants to hear on repeat, but therapy. With that I’ve been working on things like, where in my personal history did it start and why? How did I learn to wrap my self worth up so intrinsically with someone else’s opinion? Do I really think that this person hates me or am I projecting a behavior that I’ve learned to expect? It’s a hard process to work through, and I’m not where I want to be yet, but I’m sharing in case it helps someone else at all.

OP, Dont let your self-worth be dependent on other people's opinions of you. That is a recipe for disaster. Do the best that you can and let the results be what they are. Do you believe in yourself or do you have self doubt? Sometimes we project our self doubt on others. Accept yourself the way you are first and dont give a F about what others think of you. I struggle with this a LOT but working on it. You got this!

Theory: permanent WFH would lead to a reduction in salaries. The pool of highly qualified applicants for a job would increase overnight. Also I think that with less overhead (no expensive Midtown office space to rent) prices paid for professional services would go down.
