How to conduct my self routine during quarantine?

Hi :) To begin with, I have finished 1year of Korean studies in South Korea after my graduation from college. In fact I would like to start to develop career whatever what kind of experience it is, I want to learn. Yet, I am suffering from depression after I come back to home and right now to struggle for getting a job. During these time, it is quite sure that I want to pursue my own business and be able to support myself to create an ideal environment to grow. Therefore I would like to ask advice of how to conduct a routine or schedule which can balance my life between advancement and self caring. #business #college #career #routine #schedule #depression #selfbranding

How to handle having depression in a research career?

I'm looking to become a psychology researcher. I understand that research careers can be fairly stressful. However, I've also suffered from depression for a decade and expect I will still be dealing with it when I attain my career. How can I go about handling my illness while also successfully pursuing my passion? What kind of practices should I employ while on the job, and what mindset should I have? #research #psychology #mental-health #mental-illness #psychiatry #clinical-psychology #depression #stress #passion #science #brain-sciences #highered #phd

How to bounce back from failure when you have depression ?

For most of my life, I’ve been a pretty good student. People always expected me to get into Ivy League but I went to SUNY instead. The work load is easy for me but after getting severe depression and anxiety, my grades have plummeted and I lost all my financial aid after appeal. I feel like I've gone backwards while everyone is moving forward. How do I gain back my confidence and my future? Thank You. #depression #failure #confidence #future #personal-development #work-life-balance

Im in a wrong major and now my grades are falling and i feel guilty about it, what should i do?

Im a medstud, im goin in 3rd year right now. I was feeling that meds isnt for me since the begining, but i kept going bcause i dont want to let my parents down. I went through myfirst year good enough, 3.1 GPA and during second year i just couldnt bear it anymore and i got depress. I never told my parents about it, ive been keeping it a secret. My 3rd semester i only got 2.5GPA. I didnt go to any outside class activity , i withdraw my self from my friends cause i just feel i dont connect with them. I also broke up with my bf bcause somehow he just reminds me a lot about medschool. I cried at night , pretend to b okay at day, i still do it right now. Until last month, i cant takeit anymore. I cried in front of my parents, and told them that i dont want to b in meds, i dont want to b a doctor, i want to pursue design. And of course they turned me down. They said tht its okay if i dont want to b a doctro, if i finish meds i can do what ever i want. But honestly, i dont know i just feel so bad about it. I still go to college right now just bcause i dont want to see my mom dissapointed in me. It hurts me inside. I go ti college and study just for formality, and you know how hard meds is, my score falling even futher. Until i didnt pass my last exam. Now i feel im guilty, i waste time and my parents money, all i need to do is just study, and i dont even do it well. I feel lost, im afraid of my future. I used to b a straight A student but now im barely pass. What should i do? Help me. #college #psychology #college-major #clinical-psychology #psychotherapy #depression #personal-development

Should I make my roommate aware of my depression, social anxiety, and odd behaviors caused by medication?

Part of me feels like it's my business and that I shouldn't have to tell them extremely personal things but I know the medication causes my eating habits to be extremely weird, mood swings, and on occasions, twitching. I feel that I would appreciate having some sort of warning if my roommate had issues that could affect behavior but I realize that my thoughts are not universal. What would be the proper action to take? #depression #dorms #anxiety-disorders #personal-development

Should i try different jobs that are completely unrelated to my degree or go and find one that i really wanted?

So, i just recently moved here in states and i'm a fresh graduate with a degree in Bachelor in Advertising and Public Relations. I was blessed to moved here right after grad but unfortunately, i haven't been into the real world of advertising. I'm finding it hard to find a job that is an entry level and is completely related to my field. Many people here told me to find a job first which is not related to advertising, i did that. I had two part-time jobs (retail sales associate and bookseller) just to gain experience and additional skills, now that i am both endo (unemployed) to the said jobs, i am so desperate to set my footsteps on advertising door. I am sending my resumes to different agencies but i know i lack the experience which makes it hard for me to get employed. I'm kinda feeling down now and depressed. Can someone give me an advice on what should i do? I feel like i'm a burden to my family because of unemployment :( #help #advice #advertising #giving-advice #depression #seattle #personal-development #marketing-and-advertising #career-details
