Been there. Feel what you feel. Join in or not. Don’t feel you need to fake it if you’re not up for it. Or have fun and make new traditions and memories. There’s no right way. And you don’t need to explain yourself to anyone. Everything is going to be ok, you’re future is going to be great and full of new adventures, new people, new paths. To new beginnings.

Good for you. No reason to stay in a realationship that isnt working. Divorce is a good thing. A new life. Everyone will be better off and happier in the long run.

I’ve been divorced awhile now. Those things you wanted to do before that you didn’t? Do them. My life is better now than it was before. No regrets, and I wasn’t the one that left.

If you’re unassigned and want to take PTO, when is short notice too short? I imagine it probably differs across offices and firms, but curious.

What can a white manager tell her team of diverse employees (about 1/3 black) during this time? What makes sense/is thoughtful to bring up in a team meeting? Just general listening? Offering support to cover for anyone that needs to take time off to recover? Would love to hear your thoughts.
