I’m three weeks into maternity leave and feeling guilty for hating it. I have a precious little human, but I wish I could go back to work and exercise and a life that doesn’t revolve around lactation. I was expecting evolution to kick in with a wave of motherly devotion that... hasn’t arrived yet. Did anyone else feel this way? Does it get better?

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture
Soon to be FTM with potentially controversial question - every non-consulting new mom I’ve spoken to warns how horribly difficult the first few months are with baby (eg sleep deprivation, stress, etc) As a career consultant I feel like I’m pretty used to sleep deprivation, high stress - are we uniquely positioned for motherhood or am I in for a rude awakening?
Hi Ladies, How do you approach when your daughter (8) is invited to a sleepover/pool party at a hotel with other girls she’s friends with? I know the family a little from afar as our kids are in the same class/extracurricular activities but I don’t know them well. I’m going to assume the mom will be there but I just don’t know how to approach the convo without coming off weird.
Let me see if I got this right. LeKaren James and the rest of the NBA are striking over a felony child molester and domestic abuser who resisted arrest and tried to grab a knife before being shot by an officer? Wut...
Lucky (I guess) enough to inherit ~$6M from my mother who just passed. We lived rather frugally and had no idea she had built up this kind of wealth so I'm pretty amazed. Father passed already so I am 100% taker. The mix is ~350k house, ~$100k condo, ~$1M in a stable value fund, ~1.5M in 401(k), ~1.5 in Roth IRA, remaining ~1.5 is in taxable brokerage and modest amount in her HSA. I live in a different state so I don't mind selling the properties. I have no clue how to think about this...
22 years old here. Feel nothing but absolute dread when I’m reminded of the state of the world, our bleak environmental future, and the inevitable fractures in community and culture bound to grow even stronger in the next few years. Makes me wonder if I should have kids or not, and what the point of all this living is. Sucks even more because gen z played little to no part in making the world like this, yet my generation will pay the price.
being pregnant 7 week now, feel so bad with endless sick. This is my first time, I keep worried about my health and it’s health. Not sure how long I can stand for this. Any advice to ease my situation physically and emotionally. Thanks.
What if you are mandated for a Vaccine? We know there are different ways to look at this; moralistic, political, personal and professional. Never the less, I'm pretty sure of the dilemma each of us will face in the near future! I'm interested hearing what your thoughts if confronted?
Started seeing someone and while we both are well educated and have good jobs, it’s clear that there’s a big difference in our families’ economic class. I come from top 1% and my parents will be setting up a trust fund, have designer bags/clothes, am well traveled—whereas he comes from blue collar background, wears simple clothes, has not been outside the US, etc. Has anyone been in a similar situation where it presented problems?
Does anyone help their parents financially in regular amounts or in lump sum? I’d be curious to hear the context and how much you give.
Would you get a COVID Vaccine? Suppose it was mandated by your school and you still had reservations about it.
Parents of grown children: do you plan to divide your assets evenly between kids in your will? Or do you factor in where they are financially and how they act towards you? All of our life, we have tried to be fair in how we approach our kids’ upbringing, including time and financial support. However, here is the situation: We think we will leave 60% to our daughter and 40% to our son.
5 weeks pregnant and a little paranoid about chemical pregnancies. I keep wanting to take a pregnancy test every week. My doc test isn’t till early Jan. How do I chill out?.. 🥴

PTO Tip: Take PTO the last 2 weeks of November and December. Also take the1st week of January. Unlikely you get picked up the first weeks of December and holidays aren't PTO days #thetwoforonespecial
Feeling very demotivated these days. No push to work and get things done. How do people get over this phase?
Just spent 10 minutes on the phone giving directions for a 5 minute uber ride only to realize that it was an old, dirty smelly Jeep Tundra with front seating only. #canitbethursdayalready?
I see a lot of people post about long term relationships. My wife and I are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary today. We've been poor, house poor, poor again, middle class, upper middle class and now well to do. We've had many of the problems you would expect over time, multiple careers, lived in 8 states, and raised two children. It is hard, wonderful, worthwhile and doable. I hope everyone here gets as lucky as we have been.

How do you ask a colleague to stop saying things like "praise the lord"," God is amazing", "God will make me manager if it's in his plan"? It makes everyone very uncomfortable.
