Coaching on receiving an email

C: Email said “please never ask for credentials on these forums.”
T: I shouldn’t have asked for credentials in the forums
F: guilty
A: avoid the forums. Consider quitting providing support via the forums.
Worry what I’m going to report that I worked on during our company meeting.
Spin in my head about what to do instead. Text my friend that I feel like crying and quitting.
R: proof I shouldn’t have done that?
