Has anyone taken time off work because of their mental health? Did it help? Feel like I am at a breaking point but worried if I do it once I’ll end up doing it for the rest of my career

This is the issue with our American mentality. Taking a life break, once every 5 or 10 years, literally nothing wrong with that and would make you appreciate work even more! For now take a 3-4 week vacation end of Dec, or a 3 month Leave of absence (depending on how much of a breaking point you are at)

Yes and Yes. There’s nothing wrong with taking off for mental health now or in the future. I know people who take LOA every few years.

yes take the time

If you have vacation days there’s no point in letting them go to waste. Plus in the future you’ll probably have better plans than this year, I wouldn’t worry about that

Yes, combined with therapy and medication. It helped a lot

Recently 1 of my clients initiated open PTO policy. The transition from set leave balance to open was smooth process. However we are running into dilemma of how we standardize different types of leaves and whether there will be a limitation to how much open PTO is used at one time. For leisure, we just limit taking two weeks max at one time. However if we have volunteer policy or bereavement policy how should we standardize it? If EE is out for longterm sick, how do we standardize time paid?

Just got dumped after 6 months. We had a serious connection so I thought, said we loved each other, talked about future, looked like I was everything he said he wanted. But he thought I was out of his league, more established, there was an age difference, I have older kids, he has one young child. I lurked on his IG and he is on vacation with someone else 😂🥺 I’m HEARTBROKEN. How tf do I recover?!?

I have been in sales even before college. I'm reaching a burn out. I feel like the expectations get higher the more work I put in and that ends with me putting on many hats to get done. I can't catch a break, let alone allowed a decent vacation without having to negotiate based on performance. I honestly don't want to be in sales forever. I'm versatile when it comes to any tasks due to the nature of wearing many hats. Any suggestions?

I’m hearing about so many company holiday parties. We’ve never had one and it makes me so bummed out! Is it just my group/dept? Do any of you oracle peeps have a holiday party??

Hi ladies! I just got an offer and want the insight I don’t get from my non-mom friends. My background is in investigations but I’m a consultant and not really hugely passionate about it. I got an offer from Deloitte to do background investigations but it would be a pay cut. Not huge…and OT would make up some of the difference. The work/life balance would drastically improve and the guaranteed PTO/holidays would be a huge improvement over having to consider utilization. Help me weigh my options!
