Am I crazy?
So my mum revealed last night that she and my dad stopped seeing their friends after my dad got made redundant at work, many years ago.
Isn't it fucked up how Asian shame culture prevents people from reaching out to their friends when they're having a hard time?
My closest friends are mostly white with a couple of Asians and thank god we've evolved to be open and have each other's backs when shit gets tough.

Potentially making the jump from Fed consulting to banking and wondering how much my world will be turned upside down
Have developed an unhealthy relationship with food since quarantine. With all of the isolation, I feel like I started looking to food (specifically treats) as a stress release at the end of a long day/week. Also have a young kid at home and the wife and I just can never get in to a routine with exercise or cooking. What have others done? Any advice?
Has anyone ever dealt with an alcoholic/addict parent as an adult? I’m also beginning to see the pain of handling said parent effect my performance/confidence. What recourses are out there?
What’s the best way to destress/recharge in a short amount of time? Feeling super burnt out today and a sense of dread going into work tomorrow.
I was thinking of taking time off but I would need to give advanced notice for that... trying to think of ways to cope in the meantime. Any suggestions appreciated
I’m getting married and my fiancé (American) wants to have a bridal party. This is not common in my culture. What do I need to keep in mind if we decide to have one? Any unspoken rules?
An in-law is in a failing marriage. Her spouse has been extremely crude to her and her kid for several years now to the point where she feels hopeless in getting the love feels she wants and is miserable.
My wife had the idea of me showing the in-law type of love I’ve shown to her (my wife), because she claims the in-law has appreciated what I’ve done for her so far (I haven’t heard such appreciation, however) and the in-law could really use the boost to her self-worth and self-esteem.
Anyone being transitioned back to work part-time? I don’t get it. It’s like people decided the pandemic is over. I’m just nervous about my 6 month old and child care. It’s either go back or don’t come

Bundle of joy expected approx 3 month before my first work anniversary. Do I still get maternity leave of 6 months?
I remember going through passport control at US airports when I was a kid. GC holders used the same line as US citizens. No distinction. This changed in some airports... A sign of things to come?
Is it possible to adopt another adult in the States? Someone I’m close with has been in the States for 6 years and is on a education visa from South America. Any options of keeping them here?
Anyone here work at Accenture? I’m interested in the culture and how working moms are valued.
Funny how I don’t mind being on the first flight of the day when I am leaving for PTO. #Perspective #PTO
Does anyone have any insight into Accenture’s Liquid Studio group? The types of projects, culture, etc.
My husband told me that he feels parenting our 2 yr old is a burden. He’s actually a great parent and loves our son but hates all the hard work that goes with it (wake ups / getting ready for daycare / sick days / tantrums). Neither of us wants to take a step back in our career to care more time for our son, and we don’t want the other person to either. We’re considering an Au pair, but I’m mourning the fact that we, and especially he, aren’t parents that love parenting. Anyone in the same boat?

I had two NFT’s show up in my Coinbase wallet that I didn’t buy. Does anyone know why they would show up? One says “Meta-Bears” and one says “Exxe.” Both are listed under “OpenSea Collections.” Has anyone else had this happen?
AITA? I’m a 8th year attorney working at a boutique PI firm, resolving around $30m-$40 million a year. Average case value is above $1m. But I’m also being assigned lower value cases in the low six figures. From my perspective, these eat up my time and leave me with less time to focus on the high value cases I manage. AITA to ask the partner for some kind of value threshold to let me focus on those larger cases? There are younger associates at the firm who would love the work.

How do you deal with most likely being paid the least on your team and doing similar amount of work as those that are senior? I’m about 1 year into my current role and am probably the least paid. Had another guy start the same time as me and we discussed how much we get( he’s getting more then me because of more experience ) and he sucks at the job and does half the amount of work.
Husband went back to school and graduated during covid when nobody was hiring. He had to accept a subpar offer. 1.5 years later his class of 2022 little brother just got an offer 27k higher. (Same degree same school - husband had better internships)
He’s proud of his bro but I can tell he’s bummed. Ideas to cheer him up & help him find new work that values him what he’s worth?
