Of my financial situation to another person (i gave a hint of it but felt uncomfortable sharing my parent's situations). A couple years have passed since we talked and recently she has been looking through all my IG stories, asking mutual friends about what I've been up to (where my new job is, how i met my new bf, what he does, and about the things i post on social media). It makes me cringe and uncomfortable at how nosy she has been. At the same time, who cares, I should just let her be right? Is it too sensitive or childish of me to let our mutual friend know?

FYI you can restrict certain people from viewing your Instagram stories without officially blocking them

Try to block her out of your thoughts. Your mental health takes priority and anyone messing with it ain't worth your energy.

Why can’t you just tell your mutual friend to stop sharing info about you in a non confrontational, unemotional way?

Then let it go, your ex friend is struggling on her path. But here’s the thing, y’all aren’t friends, so it’s not your burden.

It's tough to break up with a friend. However as you grownokder you have less time to spare. This spend it with those that lift you and don't feel ashamed for it. It's part of growing up and living your beat possible life. As for your ex friend I would block her from you social. If she asks about you let her. You can't control her. You can control how you react. Move forward and focus on what really matters which is making new or keeping friends that lift you.

Had my annual review 6 months before a soft goal date of becoming a partner at a small firm. The firm started running metrics recently - it looks like others put a lot more billable time (many employees are older with kids grown). There were comments that I need to finish jobs sooner (push clients, staff, just prep myself, etc). I don’t disagree with these goals, but none of these were discussed as such in the last 2 years. Feeling like new goal posts will delay my advancement. Thoughts?

Where do you shop for non-work clothes that are on the more proper side? My sense of style correlates to the Theory brand but I’m 5’2 and my hips are 34 - which isnt the average proportion for their inventory. They fit more traditional European bodies (tall/skinny) and I’m struggling to find a brand that would have items proportional to my body. I tend to go for more petite sizes but can’t seem to find nicer brands. And before anyone suggests getting things altered, it kind of ruins the look.
