I suffer from really bad anxiety when I notice somethings wrong and raising a flag when a deadline is coming up. I keep investigating trying to figure it out myself (ie numbers don’t seem right or something and I catch it last minute). How to deal with this?

If you can afford it, then I would highly recommend therapy. My therapist really helped me work through my irrational (read catastrophizing) thoughts that contributed to my anxiety (i.e. “My boss must be mad at me because I told him I was too busy to help him” or “I have to finish this task today no matter what”).

What really helped me though was learning to be kinder to myself and not demand perfection. I checked myself when I realized I was overthinking a task (especially one that I was done with) and asked myself if my concerns were valid. If I felt like I gave a good effort (not that it’s perfect, but that I tried my best), then I forced myself to submit it and move on. Like any new habit, it’ll take time to get better, but it eventually becomes easier to write off that nagging voice in your head.

Wishing you the best in your mental health journey!

Really appreciate the guidance ! Do you happen to know of any virtual Counceling platforms?

On zoom call:
My boss was having technical difficulties and couldn’t hear us, but we can hear him. He starts cussing because he’s frustrated and his wife comes in and asks what’s up. Then he says “My teams call isn’t working and I don’t want to be in this f**king meeting. Do you remember *insert account person’s name*? Yeah he’s leading it so you know he’s probably bitching about me” WE COULD HEAR EVERYTHING. The account guy was like well I will be now 😂
