“I have a creative job, but lately things beyond my control have hindered what I'm able to accomplish. I hold myself to such a high standard that when things can't be how I envision them because of budget or time, it really stresses me out. I hate making excuses for why I'm not producing well, but this time I really feel like my reasons are justified. I've even started thinking that what I need is a new work environment. Does anyone else relate to any of this?”
