I’m starting to lose hope and feel like I’ll be lonely like this for the rest of my life. 😔I know it’s my brain that is tricking me into believing this, but I’m starting to see a pattern. Every year I tell myself next year would be different, but nothing has changedZ


So I’m on a milk donation group because donor moms (love them!) have helped with milk for my baby.

Recently found out I’m pregnant. Husband and I are so excited, but we weren’t exactly planning this. I’m young (26) & only a 1st year assoc (started sept 2019). We were planning on waiting at least another year or two, b/c I love my job & firm & hoped to be more senior/established before needing to take leave. I’m trying to convince myself that I can “have it all” & am not losing my Big Law career by having this baby. Any tips or advice? (More in comments)

My boyfriend and I had an altercation last year that ended with police coming and him facing domestic violence charges. Note that a lot of alcohol was involved in this incident as well as over the prior months. Past the I took a LOA to get my drinking under control and in therapy, realized I was just as much to blame even i didn’t face the legal repercussions. My family helped me out during this time and absolutely hate him. (Continued)


As we head toward 2022, please keep this in mind for your school/personal life, and remember that you owe it to yourself before anyone else. 🕊

Is this a reasonable course of action? And if so, how would I go about this to get the compensation I want?
