I cheated (emotionally) on my SO and we are going through a break up. It’s really rough. I truly love him and I know I should leave him alone and move on. We had a tumultuous relationship at the end but I can’t stop feeling so bad and guilty. Ugghhh.

Have you thought about what made you feel the need to (emotionally) cheat?

like

Yes, definitely. I just felt like I was taking a lot of emotional labor and actual labor in the house that he denies. I’m exhausted while he is trying to figure out what to do next (his job was affected due to Covid). All I can think of is us becoming his parents. I’m going through things in my head and life and I feel like I’m holding it all in to make him feel better.

Admit to your SO that you did this. They should know and be able to decide if they want to be with you or not.

Sorry, mate. You can try to save it by apologizing. At this point, they're right. If this doesn't work, let them go.

Hi fishes, officially have a 1 year work ex at ZS now. It's still weird that I am still assigned only this one project for that long and my manager doesn't even need a feel to give me another project.

I have no problem with less workload , but the learning part has perpetually stopped on this project attributed to its cyclic nature. Also i am afraid they will promote me late, even if it's their fault that they didn't give me any other project on side.

2) given his scenario, should he just move on to new employer or will he risk or loosing his i40 in this case?

Do you ever see a correlation between how messy your home space is when stress at work and life builds up?

A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn a couple of days back. I responded that I'm interested and would like to learn more while passing on my contact number and time slots to call me.

He doesn't do drugs or alcohol and my wife is going to kill me if she finds out again that I gave him money again.

What do you do when you realize accepting that promotion was a wrong decision? You had a lower income (but that you could live ok - without excesses) and not much recognition but peace and complete autonomy over your decisions in the business. On the opposite now, you may make some more money but you have 24/7 headaches, triple of the workload, anxiety, insomnia, a very arrogant manager and little to no indecency. How do you find peace to forgive yourself? How do you cope with that feeling?
