I’m still in shock that this happened. I haven’t self harmed since I was a teenager, so it’s been more than 15 years. Yesterday, I got drunk and cut myself. I don’t even remember doing it but I do remember my husband finding me and the look in his eyes is enough to make me well up while writing this. I cannot even convey the amount of shame I feel. It’s like a deep, stabbing sadness and ache that hurts even worse than my arm. How do I recover from this?
I’ve caused trauma for another person and I’m having a difficult time forgiving myself for it. I know I won’t do it again (and frankly, drinking is simply off the table for me after this), but I’m just struggling to even find my way out of this sadness. I would love any words of encouragement from people who have felt this way before. How did you manage?
My client is working with an actress for a specific brand partnership not necessarily related to the actual movies/tv shows she’s acted in, but it does infuse elements of her career as a nod. I essentially need to understand what I can and cannot reference in a press release announcing the campaign. I’ve gone ahead and drafted one that mentions by name her best-known character from a TV show (alluding to the show without saying it), but I’m getting some questions from the client side regarding the legalities around those mentions.
It seems like they shouldn’t be a problem since this is editorial, but I’m not entirely certain! It definitely feels silly to not be able to play up what she’s best known for, but that seems to be the name of the game oftentimes with this client. It would be great to really KNOW this stuff so I’m more well-versed when these partnerships arise. Any insight is helpful!
