Believe me I understand that. I feel the same kind of compulsion to be the leader, to keep the faith to inspire others and keep them afloat. That's fine, if you've got a support network elsewhere. Do you have family and friends who you can collapse on at the end of the day and help you be strong? If not then I suggest don't take that responsibility on yourself, you won't do you or your team any favours when it does overwhelm you.
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

Sadly it didn't work out. That's okay. There's other openings. Honestly I'm at the point where I don't seem to care about anything anymore. It's a very liberating but scary feeling. Anyway, thanks for your kindness and support.

Sorry it didn't come off but glad you have found more openings elsewhere, fingers crossed one of them comes off for you.

I also do hope you find something to care about and enjoy, even if just a little thing for now
