I’m planning to visit my parents after 2 years. Last time I went home, it was with a fiancé - that fell apart during COVID. I feel like a failure going home and can’t believe this is causing me so much anxiety. I want to feel happy about meeting my parents and friends after so long but I’m so not in the zone to deal with comments and questions about him. Anyone dealt with this before? Any advice is appreciated!

🐠 who got Covid, do you know how you got it? Can you please share what you did that exposed you to someone with an infection.
I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?

Hi folks, New joiner!! I do see a lot of negative feedbacks on WLB in Deloitte.. as it is not my first Big4, I do see normal work culture and WLB which was in my prior Big4s. If I do compare it with Infy or other ITES than yes it is horrible here. There is a big difference in working hours and actual constructive work, people from consulting can relate it. One small thing if new joiners or D folks are so unhappy why they want be with the organisation..

Moved to a new city where I know nobody - left my gf in home city and trying to make things work of course. Haven’t even talked to anybody that I don’t work with or come across anyone who could be a natural friend. Have just been buried with work and going to the gym. Any advice on making it work in a new place / working your butt off and asking if you can go back to being semi remote after a year or so? Have been in to office almost every day and it’s usually a ghost town.
