What is so wrong with autopilot? Maybe your conversation is dull or irrelevant? TBH, I don’t have the mental capacity to slow think every conversation I’m in.

Also how do you know you’re not being duped by more intelligent canned discussions that come off as thoughtful?

It’s ok. Some of us are in fact what you may call “a dumb”

Im not nice. Otherwise, prettt turre

Sounds like the words of a nice idiot

I've never wanted kids and never wanted to be married. Spent 20 years building my career and now I'm super successful with not a care in the world. But seeing my friends' children getting married, having kids, etc., is making me feel like I made a terrible mistake. This regret keeps me up at night & I'm afraid to open up about it to my friends because of how adamant I was about not having a family. Anyone ever dealt with this? I can go to a therapist but wanted feedback from other leaders

What’s it like to be the clueless neighbor who makes so much noise? I have lived in my apartment for 11 years and have never once received a noise complaint. But I can’t stop calling about my new neighbor upstairs who doesn’t seem to care that they’re disturbing others (many in the building have complained) Walk me through being that inconsiderate person!!! I do not understand.

So, some of my co-workers simply said that they want to go ahead and start something or start looking elsewhere (career change) because they don't know how much it will last at the pace we are going in regards to case intake and pay out. Should I start panicking or simply start looking elsewhere? They even they even told me if I was looking elsewhere or planned on doing so also. I found it weird in a way.

I get pretty upset every time I see someone on social media trying to flaunt their (in most cases) non existing "wealth". I'm not sure if it's jealousy or what but I can't help it. For example, there are people that film reels of destinations because they seem to genuinely enjoy traveling while there are others that film those reels trying to show off. There's people that film when they are driving because they want to genuinely share a nice view while there are others that while doing contd.

One of the best things I recently started doing was using guides on Apple Maps to have 1) n ongoing list of every restaurant I eat at that I enjoyed and 2) a list of every restaurant I want to try. Super helpful when you are in a new area and want to find somewhere to eat or when somebody asks for restaurant recommendation. I just wish I could add notes for what I ordered and general rating of the restaurant for future use
