Ladies, I had a breakthrough with my boyfriend and I am so proud. I have encouraged him to go to therapy for years. He grew up with a father who is emotionally abusive. He felt like he didn’t need to go because he could just “handle it” (part of the toxic culture he was raised in) so I stopped pushing. Yesterday he told me he was going to therapy to try it out, I said okay, and made him a coffee to go. He came home, hugged me, cried, and read me a list of things he was working on. 🥺💛

PSA: if you’re having holiday parties this season, consider hosting a canned food drive for your local food shelter. It’s easy - just search & register on your city’s food bank website and they provide all the bins & instructions. You can ask each guest to bring 1 non perishable food item. Attached is an example for Houston

On the bench this week, have PTO Friday, but have already mentally checked out and it’s not even noon on Monday. I feel guilty about not feeling guilty. I just had to say it to all the randoms on FB.

Does anyone else’s work teams make them feel guilty for taking PTO? My manager is already complaining about how much work he has next week (most of which is not even because of me being off). I’ve heard team members bitching about other people taking time off as well. Why don’t we respect that people have lives outside of work?
