I’m struggling mentally and it’s affecting my performance at work. I’d like to let my manager know, both to protect myself if/when I fail massively and for support. However, I’m concerned she might be unsympathetic since mental health is personal. What’s the best way to frame this to a manager? For reference, I’m considered a high performer and have more direct reports than anyone at my level…but I feel it slipping away quickly and am concerned I’ll burn a bridge before ringing the alarm.

My boyfriend and I hadn’t had sex for 2.5 months (with other long breaks before that). I broke and brought up the issue and he eventually explained that he’s not been attracted to me. I’m 105 lbs and ride my bike to get around the city (or at least do a leisure ride on the weekends if I had no errands to run that week), but he still thinks I’m too sedentary and spend too much time curled up on my phone. But the problem is…cont

During open enrollment the only benefit I set up was a health savings account. Now I’m planning to start at a new firm in January. Can I cancel my hsa at EY by inputting life event like changing employment?
Term life insurance question - I added the AICPA annual term policy last year. I've noticed personal finance media seems to push 10-20 year term and not discuss annual. It was considerable cheaper up front and more at the end than 10yr per the fee schedule. If all goes according to plan I'll be at or close to FI within 5-7 years so not sure that I'd keep the full amount past then and would miss the benefit of the cheaper years at the end. Am I missing other risks of not doing 10+ term?

Question on mortgages. I’m selling my house 4 months after a refi (great sellers market, and had a death in my family so need to move). My lender (a friend of mine) says I have to pay a penalty if I sell before I make my first 6 payments. I read my contract E2E though and it explicitly says there’s no pre-payment penalty. I assume he’s BSing me - anyone have any background to this? He swears it’s “standard”. This is my 3rd home purchase and have never heard of this!

Does EY-P sponsor visa applications to the US? I’m in Canada but am looking for a role in the US since my wife is moving for school next year (preferably with me, you know, we’re in love and all that). I’m an accountant, so should be able to work a TN visa. I have someone up here that will refer, but not sure if visa sponsorship is a hard stop. While we’re asking questions, does a Canadian employee referral for a US position mean less than a US employee referral?

How do you know if you’re doing well compared to your SC class or not? I find myself always comparing my firm contributions with other from my starting class. I know it’s not healthy but I don’t want to get passed over for promotions (if/when they ever happen again) because others did more/better contributions. How do you stay sane and keep yourself from playing the comparison game??
