Sometimes I feel like I’m pushing away my feelings and not dealing with them in an effort to “compartmentalize” and function “as normal”. Does anyone else feel like this? I’ve been taking my SO getting laid off really hard.
My SO was laid off and has recently delved into philosophy and intense introspection. I'm all for taking time for yourself but I feel like they're losing touch with reality. New job is secured. Meanwhile I'm trying to get them to start with wedding planning, move planning, etc while still not working because I'm on a biological clock here, pal, but "time is a construct" or whatever. Someone help me gain perspective before I lose my shit. Things need to be done/planned for and I can't do it all.

Deloitte Slaughter, Part II - There’s a new story out of the Deloitte gossip machine, unverified for now. It seems they will be going through another bigger round of layoffs in the fall, once the voluntary program expires (mid-Sept). They already have a couple of scenarios and are populating names in each of these, mostly based on metrics. Anyone else hear this? When will the bloodbath stop...

Resigned today & boss says they’ve interpreted Publicis contracts as having a gag clause (i.e. can’t tell anyone you’re leaving, only they can announce). Anyone had experience with this? (Cont. ⬇️)
