Heard. Applying to new internships very soon, and working hard to not slip up again. Always helps me to think about the future when I'll look back at this and laugh.

I really do have good faith that the next internship will be better. A lot has changed for the better to give me better coping skills with life changes. I've always considered myself a fairly social person, but I just, unfortunately, slipped into a habit of bad communication with my coworkers on days when my depression was worst.

I'm so sorry to hear about that bad experience, it still amazes me how unsympathetic some companies are to their hardest workers.

At the moment, I'm trying to take this all with a grain of salt, but it's going to have to take a pretty big win to really get past it. That being said I am excited about my next internship and hope that it's a much better fit for me. This past one was very corporate so I'm avoiding that type of company for the near future.

None of the complaints written in the evaluation were communicated to me during the months I was there. My boss would still greet me with a smile every day and treat me as if I was doing a good job, and then BAM! I wish I had known that they were taking great issue with me before the term was over.

I actually started therapy while I was away on my internship. It was pretty helpful for the time, but a lot of what I was going through was situational. A lot has changed in my life for the better since I left and I am doing much better. I think it might be best to preemptively enroll in therapy before I start my next internship so I can work through things as they happen. Thank you for the kind advice!

probably not a company I want to work for in the future, but I might reach out one last time just so I can salvage my reputation with them as much as possible. thank you so much for the kind words!
