Same! I led a training from my couch this morning and I was so comfortable that it was easier to focus on the discussion.

I was a stay at home mom for 10 years; had 4 children & helped my husband build a decent non legal business. I started my PI practice at end of 2019. I did great in 2020. Unexpectedly I developed inappropriate feelings for a mentor over zoom. We decided to stop working together and started therapy. I faced my horrible childhood trauma, gained confidence and realized how terrible my marriage is. Husband admits mistreating me & regrets taking advantage but thinks I’m unfair for wanting a divorce.

I am so discouraged. Left consulting as a high performer and well respected by my colleagues and clients to an industry role 2 months ago and feel it’s not clicking. I feel so dumb all the time, I feel like my hiring manager regrets they hired me (even though she is wonderful and supportive) and I feel like the people I interact with think I’m an idiot. It’s a 180 degree turn from just two months ago. Has anyone else gone through similar? Feeling really embarrassed. Maybe I made a mistake.
