I’ve suffered from workaholism for a long time. Thanks to a lot of great self help books and therapy, I’m no longer putting work on a pedestal and I’m spending a lot more time on self care and my marriage. But, unfortunately, I am now getting withdrawals, because my body is used to the daily adrenaline of throwing myself into work. It’s this terrible feeling of like anguish/unease in my gut, but I don’t have anything I’m worried about- it’s like my body wants to find something to worry about.
I have a friend who is a pretty heavy drinker and has started developing health issues from it. He’s not taking it seriously and a lot of our friends also like going out and drinking a lot so it’s just being written off as something funny to laugh about. I don’t want to overstep if he doesn’t want to take it seriously but am I overreacting for finding the whole situation really uncomfortable?

I can’t stop feeling like the “little girl” in the room when I’m in meetings with senior clients and MDPs who are men (which is all of them). Sometimes it feels like I even purposefully disempower myself so I don’t have to fail on my own. It feels like I assume failure is my default setting, and can’t get out of that mindset. How do I get over this?
