Just failed on an easy analysis. Can’t deal with having so tight timelines for accurate analysis plus everything else on my plate. How do you deal with failure? I feel like I will never make it

For me, I changed the definition of failure. I had and continue to experience this on various degrees. Sometimes, I would have clients yelling at me and I would go absolute numb and mess up a super simple analysis! I have learnt that it gets better with time (whether you learn to adapt to work faster, or you learn to cope with the stress of failure),and most importantly it's important to take learnings from the set back (and not failure). I used to maintain a small journal where I used jot down the things that went well and those that didn't. Jotting things that went well (even if I showed up to work after a meltdown) made me feel more confident. In the end, you need to find your own way to not lose confidence and hope. For me, many times positive psychology did not work and only made me bitter. Good luck!

OP - we all make mistakes. The key is to learn from it and never repeat the same mistake. Figure out where you went wrong - was it in the logic, the approach or just the formula? Maybe you didn’t understand the original ask. It’s very important to pause and figure out what to do differently the next time around. Then commit to being better and move on.

I think I’m having a mental breakdown. I really have tried hard to deal with my depression (therapist/meds/exercise/etc.) but I’m at the end of my rope. I’ve only been at my job for a little under a year, so I don’t feel like I can tell anyone or try and take leave.

Appreciate any EMDR experiences.
