Startup survivor: My startup failed in a bad, bad, way. More than a year later I still suffer from depression and PTSD. I’d like to connect with traumatized founders for support. Please reach out via the contact author button.


  • Well you said it, your Startup failed. Which means NOT YOU. It is important to de-link yourself from your idea / company / startup. My suggestion for the immediate term is to get back into doing daily things well, simple stuff that you can have ritual around, like going for a walk or something like that. Treat yourself as a your own younger sibling, how would you treat them if their startup failed; compassion and understanding for yourself.
