Hi all look for some advice:

I recently signed an offer with a company and cleared the background to receive my welcome letter with onboarding info. They are now asking me about relocating to Chicago and I do not want to move as they are working remote at the moment. Is there a way of not having to move since my offer was signed with talking about relocating or even in the offer letter?

I trust the FIRE community’s advice so what steps would you take if you were in my shoes:
I moved back home (very remote area) from a city to save money during WFH, which was huge for FI progress. I have started to really resent my job and absolute lack of social life, but can’t find another job I’m passionate about or justify moving back to a high COL area. I think taking FI too extreme might be hurting my mental health.
What would you do if you were me? (More details below)

Does anyone else fee like their life is devoid of all meaning? I’m just going through the motions each day and I feel absolutely nothing. Pre-COVID I would fake happy enough in the office to feel at least something, but WFH alone all the time just leaves me with my own dark apathetic thoughts.

Negotiating a settlement. I’m at $10k, opposing counsel is at $20k. My client won’t go higher than $15k. OC has come down to 17.5k and says his client won’t budge from that. Do I offer 12.5k so we can hopefully meet in the middle at 15k? Is that how the settlement game is played? Seems dumb we can’t just say let’s meet in the middle now and be done with this.

I’ve read a lot of big law posts, and if I saw such venom when I went into the practice, I would be very discouraged. My view is there are so many reasons why lawyering is exciting and great, and so many jobs that won’t suck your life from you, that, if you hate the practice, maybe it’s because you work in a horrible environment that values the dollar over problem solving.
