I’m writing an email to Captain Awkward right now, on how to break up with my friend, or maybe put the friendship back on the rails (if that’s even possible and I decide that’s what I want.) There’s so much that I’m actually outlining it. I don’t know if it will ever get published, but I need to get it all out somewhere. Maybe by the time I’m finished writing it the situation will be resolved. (Probably not.)

*Sigh*

Also my job is freaking insane. So many clients are off the rails right now. I have an amazing supervisor who is a crazy-good mentor. But there’s so much batshit stuff going on right now, and I am responsible for so damn much, that every interaction is a learning opportunity, which he is mapping out for me. However, it’s super intense, and I feel like I’m simultaneously doing a great and a terrible job, because he is so involved. I get a lot of praise for what I’m doing well at, as well as a lot of guidance on how I can manage situations better, take a step back, etc. It’s not micromanagement, but it is super intense. I don’t want to ask for less help, because it is absolutely critical for me to help stave off accounts that are melting down (through no fault of my own.) But I also have to at least express that it’s really wearing me down because it’s so much to absorb and take in.
