I heard that the big accounting firms are using covid as an excuse to cut benefits despite some firms actually growing during covid. Is this true? If its true thats kinda sad theyre using covid as excuse to increase profitability at the expense of employees. Seems like a pretty obvious lie.

Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.

This will either make me feel sad or okay.... at 25, how much did you have saved? Not including 401k.

Advice on what to do when i cant afford therapy? I had a few free sessions through company benefits but that's all done now. It helped. Felt like i was at a much better place at the end of it and was given exercises to do. Then two weeks later, feel super blue again and cant be bothered with those exercises now. Hard to be motivated to stay on track when i feel so sad about everything. Thoughts?

Now more than ever discern who is speaking blessings into your life vs sputtering negative beliefs to take hold and manifest in your reality. Don’t allow those who are seeking to manipulate you to get you in a position where you’re performing mental gymnastics to justify having them in your life. You know who you are and how to stand in your truth without anyone else telling you how you are and what is true. Happy Monday 🤗
