Look up ‘rejection sensitive dysphoria’. While this may or me not be what you’re experiencing, reading more about it and understanding it can help you be kinder to yourself as well as using some of their coping mechanisms

The best way to get to the bottom this is therapy. I’m fully aware that therapy is not feasible for everyone but I believe talking with a professional can help you figure out why you feel this way and what you can do to change your perspective on rejection. Also, I’d recommend researching books or articles on this topic to gain some sort of background on this topic. Good luck.

Not work related but idk where to ask this. We’ve been invited to our first post Covid cookout. It’s at my husband’s former colleagues place so we don’t the hosts too well but we know there are not going to be any kids so mostly a grown up football party. What would bring to it? Because of the current scenario I’m skeptical of bringing my home cooked dip.

I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
