Firm passed me over for partnership but seems to be bribing me to stay with a bonus that is about 75% of my base pay. I feel good about the money but shitty about not making partner. Anyone else in this happy/sad boat?

I used to be in consulting but moved over to social impact two years ago. I found out I’m getting laid off EOM due to budget cut and I’m really sad. I really don’t have the motivation to apply for new roles, interview etc when usually I actually love that process. Also my role was well paid for nonprofit sector and looking at other roles in the space makes me realize I’m not going to get close to the same salary again. Considering consulting again but loved this job 1000% more. Advice?

This might be the pettiest thing to be sad about, but as someone who recently moved to a FAANG with a chunky compensation bump, I've actually oftentimes felt poor because I'm now the most junior / least paid person in the house and everyone around me earns more. Has anyone else experienced these feelings?

I just started dating someone amazing and successful and it’s going so well, but I’m afraid he’s going to find out that I’m basically living like a broke student even though I make 80k.
