I realized most of my anxiety or depression stems from a lack of career fulfillment.

My therapist made me aware of this but I'm looking for coping tools that someone in my situation has found useful. HELP!

I know they are on a hiring spree so would coming in as a Manager be possible? I’ve previously been on M&A audit/AAS engagements.

Have a offer from Deloitte (SAP Treasury) at Manager Level. Based out of NYC. Base- 170K, 15K Sign- on bonus. Not sure about the annual bonus yet. I have total 16 YOE and am very strong in this field. PS- I an independent consultant and was doing very well (way above the Deloitte offer) until Covid hit

Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?

here's my prediction. If Biden wins, the media will begin to message the following; -The worst COVID risks and outcomes are to people with identifiable risk factors such as obesity and diabetes. -Most other people who catch it will experience a bad flu. -Many other people who catch it won't even know they have it. -It's not commonly transmitted by touching objects and person to person transmittal is low risk except in close contact. The media will then message that we should; (cont'd)
