My world is crumbling. Everyone in my family constantly has serious health problems (they’re unlucky, not due to lifestyle choice). I’m doing great but I just can’t catch a break. Turning to alcohol more and more. Feel like I should get a counselor at some point but how do I even find the time.

I use a traditional therapist, but my appointments are virtual, so it’s pretty easy to squeeze them into my schedule. Therapy is 100% worth making room for.

I've been through patches of life where I've felt the same, OP. It sucks because it's completely out of your control. Hang in there, buddy.

Find a friend you think has a therapist. Ask their therapist to recommend someone for you. And set aside 1 hr on Friday for a virtual meeting. This worked for me.

I just listened to an interview of a creative director recount their path towards copywriting at a famous ad agency. It could not have been a more textbook case of failing upwards as a white man.

It would seem the only thing you need to make it as an advertising creative is to have lots of not particularly original ideas. Practically every other skill is unnecessary. If you’re a white man.

That this level of mediocrity passes for talent explains why so many agency briefs are so lame.
