I'm sorry that is happening to you OP. That really sucks and I can relate. Stick with the people who care about you. Those who call you crazy/dramatic do so bc they don't understand. You got this!

Thank you for your words

Recovering A myself. I have learned that it takes practice. It’s all new for me and pretty difficult to navigate but the alternative is being stuck in that vicious life of drinking. Luckily my team is awesome and I have been open with most about my struggles.

I know I need to pick my battles and I can't change others. I do have a lot of people who care for me here which is why I stay. But how do you keep the culture of this industry from severely impacting you (besides leaving). I'm very honest with people and that helps but yikes have people been insensitive on here and I know it's folks from my firm and allllll of our firms. Thanks. Sorry for the rant

Hi all, so when studying for FAR I see that in the simulation when there is a question that requires to fill out multiple columns (e.g., putting in account name and amount) if I get one column correct but the other one is wrong Becker marks the entire question yellow. It doesn’t mark the correct answer green, all is just yellow. Just want to know if the actual exam is graded like this also? My guess is no, but just want to confirm.

Feeling left out from my male associates. I am a first year associate at V100. The office and practice group I am at is small though. In the group there are 2 other male associates about 4-5 years older than me. They have known each other for awhile before working at the firm and are very close. Adjusting to the office is hard and I feel very left out and not included. Any advice on trying to bond with them? I just really wish I had another associate I could lean on and relate to.

I feel like a struggle with “Black and White” thinking where if someone does something that makes me really upset, they became ‘bad’ in my eyes for a while. I.e at work, if we are in a super stressful situation and a coworker is upset or has a annoyed tone with me, I’ll automatically be avoiding or kinda worried to be around that coworker for a while/can’t focus around them properly until they show a diff mood. I also do this in my personal life. Anyone with similar experience/ways to help?

Sort of had a bit of a breakdown today and cried all afternoon. This has never happened before and nothing significant caused it, I think it’s just been built up over a couple weeks.
