I’d tell someone what you are feeling. Does zero good for you or company to have you in this spot, particularly if you’re invested in the firm. Short term, fine, but a year is too long, they should work with you to get you to a better place.

My partner is still out of work from being laid off due to COVID and made it to a final round interview that he thought went well , and got a denial email this morning. I was so excited to finally not feel so much financial pressure as his unemployment is stalled, but I just feel terrible, like this will never end and start to impact our relationship because he can’t pull his weight with the bills. Plus, I have a presentation today and just feel so distracted — an awful awful morning.
