Y’all. The past 3 months I’ve been really going through it mentally it’s been up and down. I had my breaking point last night and it feels like today I can’t even think about work. I know where most of this is coming from. I recently started therapy about 2 months ago and It’s been really eye opening and helpful but also it’s been extremely hard to learn certain things and patterns about myself. I had a really bad breakdown last night. And curious how therapy has helped you

They did try to adjust the bonus so TC would be close to what I am looking for. However, the signon bonus is a bit lower than what I was hoping. How do you negotiate that and what do I say? Truth is, I am still a bit on the fence about the move. I really like my boss and my team and we have so many amazing (TBC below)
