Has anyone successfully started a relationship recently? Would love to hear some success stories amid all the pain and heartbreak in this forum!

Probably not exactly what you’re looking for, but I recently got out of a long term (13 yr) relationship that was making me anxious, depressed, self-doubting, etc. I’m focusing on myself, finding the little things that make me happy, spending more time with friends and hobbies, and am much happier now. Point being that although a good relationship would be great, I’ve found a better relationship with myself and that’s a necessary foundation for success with someone else

I did! Recently I started a relationship with a man that I have been seeing for the past 2 years. We decided that we should be exclusive in June. So far, so good. We already are making plans for the future (not like marriage, but plans to travel together next year)

You ever feel like you're just failing to excel in consulting? Today and yesterday have been really hard to tap into any discipline to push past whatever brain fog/lack of motivation is preventing me from making progress on this project. I don't know if I'm just tapped out or not cut out for this type of intensity, but I'm 1.5 yrs into consulting after working in industry and this seems to happen too often. I just don't feel like I'm as good as my peers and don't know that I can get there.

I know I’ll get mixed answers, but I need some advice. I have a network where I could possibly (keyword possibly) move into IT Risk Assurance. I’m currently on a long term Staff Aug project that I don’t think is adding any value to my development. I know IT Risk Assurance gets a bad rep, but I think it’ll help me better develop as opposed to the Staff Aug project I’m on. Please give me some advice on what I should expect (pros and cons) as well as exit ops.
