You're supposed to recover from it???

I had to take about a month off after to decompress and feel human again but it was pretty chill after that

I'm still trying to, I'll update you if I ever regain my spark haha

Once it was all over the pain just went away on its own.

This is your life now, you were reborn through trial by fire.

Thread: I stepped away from a job that was making me miserable a few months ago to focus on my mental health. I had been talking to a company during those months who gave me a verbal offer and then recently said they had to put the role on hold because of the market. Now I’m scrambling to find a job and people aren’t hiring until August at the earliest. If there’s a 4 month gap in my resume, will the “I was taking care of my mental health” line sound bad?

Need help settling a debate with my friend. She thinks I will have an easier time getting research grants because I'm male. I think it's the opposite because companies are trying to change the status quo and get more women involved (which I'm not complaining about... please don't attack me.) Which one of us is more right than the other? I'm interested in getting as many viewpoints as possible, whether or not they agree with me or with her. Thanks!!!
