My immediate family, extended family, and my in laws all see me as some hero/strong leader. I don’t want to be one. I hate being the center of attention, because it gives me extreme anxiety. I ignore in the moment but eventually I always have a breakdown.
A former co-worker (not from W+K) who I know got let go because he was not effective or good at his job just got a new job as a VP of Design of a major corporation. He blatantly lied about his experience on LinkedIn (and I assume his resume), inflating his title and severely either overstating his role on projects or flat-out making up projects. It made me wonder just how many “leaders” do you think gain their roles this way? I know it happens, but that doesn’t lessen my anger one bit.

I love what I do. But I just want Administration to have our backs. Last semester I had 4-5 unruly students I begged and pleaded for them to get them out of my class. They did nothing for the whole semester. I told the school board I refuse to teach at that school with that administration there. I don't trust them and I have no faith in them Administration is supposed to have our backs.

Wanting to start therapy for social anxiety/depression but no idea where to start. Those that see a therapist, how often do you usually go? Ball park price range? Has anyone tried online therapists?
I recently started investing time in my hobbies and I feel like that’s a free therapy. If someone is feeling too anxious or depressed, I would recommend them to try painting, writing or swimming.

I feel like my insurance company bait and switched me. For initial prescription and subsequent refill was $0. Went to pick up today and was going to be $500. Glad there’s alternatives but who would pay $500 for a month’s worth of pills.

I feel the same way as you a lot of the time. You should look into therapy. Being able to talk through your feelings with an unbiased person who doesn’t have any expectations of you might be really helpful and make things seem less overwhelming. They would also help you find healthy coping mechanisms for these feelings so you don’t get to your breaking point.
We teach people how to treat us. I’m recalling a morning a few years ago when I got so mad at my family because I’d made this amazing breakfast for everyone and I hadn’t even sat down yet bc I was doing everything, and they all finished and left the table. I ate by myself. I had this realization that it was my own doing. I had taught them to do that.
I sat down with them after and said that I would be asking for more help going forward. That nobody would start eating until I sat down with them.
That is a small metaphor to say, we teach people how to treat us. You be a role model, mentor and leader by living in alignment with what is right for you. And I agree that maybe a therapist or a coach could help bring awareness to those patterns and how to change them going forward. Good luck!!
My wife is the daughter that does all/leads her family, she's the middle child. I am the son--the oldest--that does all for/leads my family. And we have great people on both sides. It's not existential life stuff we deal with (but once in a while). But it is exhausting. Sometimes it would just be fun to get drunk and go cow tipping without fear of what someone thinks. In the end, we both just set good boundaries; mine stronger/better than my wife's. Boundaries do not just mean time spent "doing for" others. It also means time spent with, how often and what we do. I know a lot of people that do things from the goodness of their hearts, that later end up resenting those very same people. Talking with a professional will really help in this area. Share notes with your spouse (assumption made from the use of in-laws in your post). May be that you just need to learn to take praise better. Could also be that you need to learn how to tell people, "i make mistakes too" and be feel comfortable to make them. I'd really talk with a professional. Be careful to pick the right one--faith based, scientific or professional. And, do not be afraid to switch if you are not "feeling it."
It sounds like you have an unexamined, limiting belief. “ If I let go, it all falls apart.” A coach or therapist can help you to see what’s driving it, clean it up/heal the wound that created that story, and replace it with a more empowering inner voice. For fun: Listen to “Surface Pressure” from Encanto and begin to notice when you’re being that character. Give that self grace. You don’t have to be the strongest.
