Anyone else here just really unhappy? We make a good salary, get travel benefits, points, hotel status, car rentals. Something is just still pretty depressing.

For me it's being single despite actively trying to not be single

Highest point in my career coincided with all markers of clinical depression. No desire to see friends, inexplicable weight gain (with no change in diet or exercise regimen). Would sleep 18 hours on weekends if left unchecked by my gf. I make an incredible salary but that's not filling the gap

Being single takes confidence, you have to be comfortable with yourself before you are in a relationship. Hope you find someone soon! 🤗

I feel just like you OP. Didn't realize the hours would be so much, also having to work on weekend doesn't help. I come from industry, so I really miss being able to see friends and family much more often. And being physically healthier from having more time to work out and sleep a good amount every night. Sure the money's good, but not all of us are here are motivated by money or status. If you're unhappy maybe look to transition soon. I'm planning to look into industry as soon as I hit the 1.5-2 year mark.

Question about LEAPs. I purchased 1/2022 calls on a few down in the dumps real estate stocks like IVR. When I read about leaps, the advice was to buy some thing with a minimum delta of .70, So I bought, for example, a 1.50 call for IVR. If this stock reaches pre-Covid levels, and my LEAP is deep, deep lTM, will I have trouble selling it? Thanks, this is my first day.
