Confession - I decided to do a huge life project. For the next half year, I want to try living in an imaginary world. I just changed all of my friends' contact names in my phone to be celebrity. Going to try metaverse, and this is not a joke.

I know, but I want to try while I still can (i.e., before having kids)... I may report back the progress.

No, but I do want to write down how I feel in these 6 months. I have a hypothesis - we can generate happiness from things that we imagine not from things really happened.

Which celebrities? And when you interact with these friends, will you pretend they are the celebrities in real life? Do you just want to be famous?

Ah I see! 1) I’m sad to hear about your loss. 2) It would be interesting to journal during this time and see what you can take out of this experience. Good luck to you!

I seem to feel the same emotions as my partner. When they feel sad, i try to make them feel better but I end up feeling sad too. Whether it’s positive or negative. When i feel a negative emotion tho, I feel as if my partner is able to help and support me well because they don’t also “feel the same emotion as me”. what can i do about this? is this normal?

I was talking to my husband yesterday and he mentioned feeling anxious most of the day, and I realized that he used to say that sometimes when we were dating and I never understood why he would be feeling anxious but not know why/have a reason he was anxious. I just hadn’t experienced it so couldn’t fully relate. I can now say that after 3 years in biglaw, I do understand and can relate. Sad what these high stress/ high hour corporate jobs do to our mental health. No real story, just sharing.
