In crisis mode about being let go or get fired and stupid things I told my Partner. Can I DM someone?

Not sure if you’re in consulting or law or banking. Def not a reason to fire you in law firms. They won’t put you on partner track and you’ll get the maintenance work rather than cool deals- but they won’t fire you. And, even if they want to let you go, they usually give you 3 mo to look.

No. It’s not bad. It’s likely a reaction or result of years of socialization and the dark side of being a high overachiever because of a need for external validation v internal emotional resilience. Not you - I also suffer from this. Do you have a therapist? Even an etherapist really helps to work through this. Unlike our parents or whoever got us into this funk- a therapist is a safe space to list out objectively what you do accomplish materially or emotional health wise v the nagging every day fears, anxiety and depression

Yes sure

I’m curious too. What did you say

I basically said I am looking for other job without a job lining up

I kind want to get the partner assessment on if I have any progression in the current job. If he really values me, I may stay

You can DM me too if you want someone else to talk through and strategize with you

Yes
