When you have been ghosted by your ex, how do you get over the anger and hurt when there is so much you want to say to them? PS: I cheated on her and came to tell her the truth. We went on couple therapy and things were fine (at least what I thought). She then waited for me to travel for work and came to pick up all her stuffs, blocked me from everywhere and just disappeared. She keeps all the payments I making (didn’t change that, her phone, Netflix, her car, etc.) but totally disappeared.

I have recently started a new role at a tech company. I was an IC at big-4 and took a role as a principal engineer at a mid-size Saas company. Since I interviewed there was a re-org and now I’m leading an organization of 50+ people. I love the company and was given an insane amount of equity. As an introvert, can anyone give me advice on how not to fail terribly at this as someone who have never managed people before and is socially inept

In this new year, I would like to get better at investing. I am embarrassed to say that all I have done is max out my 401K every year.

I just don't know where to start, any suggestions on good how to books for beginners? What daily news sections should I be reading?
