The Year end process at Deloitte has me reflecting on my past engagements. I’ve two tough and stressful project experiences that absolutely consumed my life at the time. The amount of stress and anxiety I felt, I’d never wish on anyone. Is it too dramatic to say that it’s hard to even think about those points in my life?

No it’s normal to feel this way OP, I’ve been there before (my first project 3 years ago) and when I think back it still makes me anxious. I hope you are on a better team now with people who provide support you need! There are many great people and teams you just need to find your people and use their network suggestions when looking for future projects!

Is this a even a question or just a reflection

Too dramatic to who?? If its hard to do then it’s hard for YOU. who cares what anyone else thinks about it, it’s not their life to think about

Nope, I wouldn’t say it’s “too dramatic” or anything like it. What’s important is that it’s an honest assessment of how you feel.

But I feel a rift with him for this and other reasons, I hate him & his attitude. Idk what to do, just venting I guess.
