UX UI Designers. Need some advice. We just kicked off a new website redesign project for a client of ours and one of the next steps which I have to prepare is a customer journey mapping workshop with the client. But I’ve never done it before so this is a new process for me. Any advice on how I should set this up?

My girlfriend and I live in the same 1BR apt (600sq ft.) in NY. Both full time telework. She is constantly stressed from her job, whereas, my project is currently in a lull and I'm not busy. I like to walk around the apartment and one of the places along my walk is the bedroom, where she works. I work in the living room. I always ask to walk in and give her some "love" as she's constantly stressed. Today, we fought because I "bother" her too much and add to her stress. What do I do?
Hail Client, full of grace. The RFP response is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst our sales leads, and blessed is the fruit of my laborious PRD initiative, this god-awful 75 page document.

Have you ever felt like the client appreciates you more than your managers? My managers on my team never give me any praise even though I work a shit ton of hours and produce great work. The client is always providing me with amazing feedback It feels good to be shown some ￼recognition

I feel like everyone around me is finding love and in relationships except for me. I’ve operated alone most for my life (traumatic childhood- been on my own for a while so its hard to open up). I’m ready for something and I go on dates but nothing is making me excited. I feel like I’m trying to really get out there. Not sure what the point of this post is- Just feeling really lonely lately and looking for hope.

My manger reached out to my counselor regarding my performance expressing he is not happy with me. I thought I was trying my best past couple of weeks but just realized he is not happy with my work.

How should I improve? I hate that I suck at PM work. Experiencing a lot of anxiety
