I feel for you and have been there! It broke me and I learned to document things in buckets to delegate, thingss I had to own (including the tough counterparts), and what specifically I needed from my boss. I then delegated with oversight and had an honest session with the boss. Asking for support with specific requests helped. The project remained beastly but those steps helped me feel like it was not all on me. I also very clearly communicated and documented the risks so that when things went sideways, which they did, it was not a surprise. I was a Manager when this went down

... advice on how not to put the entire weight of the project on my shoulders at the Lead.

Most super smart people I've worked with were playing dumb when asked to do something they were not comfortable with... So the excuses sounded like: I don't understand the ask, I need a deeper dive.. and this could go on for weeks..

Thought you could use the same tactic

Lol.

Just saying OP, just saying 🤷🏼
