Why was he the worst? Sounds like the dude was a beast if you’re thinking about the good times

funny

Never said or directed towards that anything was about me EY2 so quit reaching.

smart

Sounds like you need someone to help you get over him 😉 👋

We all tend to latch onto the good times and those butterflies in the stomach that we felt in the beginning of the relationship. Even when things start going downhill, we struggle to let go of that initial feeling of euphoria when everything was so ‘perfect’ so we stay in an unhealthy relationship longer than we should hoping things will somehow get better. You don’t miss him….you miss the feeling you had when you were happy with him. You can have that with someone else too….someone who will also be the best thing that happened to you ☺️. Don’t be hard on yourself and just remember that this too shall pass ❤️

Lol sure. You guys can hit me up in DM if you need to vent. Free of charge! 😂

Our brains often focus on positive memories and romanticizing the past. You need to actively reframe and redirect to really move on.

On the extreme end of that—if he was truly ‘the worst’—there is trauma bonding. You should look into that if he was emotionally and/or physically abusive.

Good. I hope you discuss this with your therapist penly so you can overcome trauma bonding

Those memories that have you holding on with your fingertips will fade once someone comes into your life to show you how capable people can treat each other with live and respect Time heals those thoughts!

Everything happens for a reason. My ex broke up with me earlier this year and I miss her so much. But she also said and did terrible things to me. I guess it’s all a learning experience…

Yes. Thanks for validating my thoughts

Especially now that he has figured things out and the changes I’d wanted/needed have finally stuck 🥲 and he also finally acknowledged & apologized for what he did

Hello all, I m sharing a bad experience with UST Global and wanted to know your input in such scenario.
I was interviewed for ofsaa role and it went well. 7th day I got a call from HR confirming me on my selection. I was happy as somehow we agreed on one figure also. She mentioned that offer will be released in 2 days. But after that no show.
after 1 month HR picked my call and mentioned my profile was not approved by business as I dnt have much experience as required.
What should I do now.

Recruiter told me that my interview performance was good, but they think that a new role might be a better fit for me. Same title but different focus area. Was told that the hiring team is working on the headcount issue, and this does not mean I am not being considered for the first role. Am I a back up to them or being dinged already?

Would you still hang out with ppl who you grew up together with but don’t necessarily click in terms of personalities anymore? It’s the growing up together part that still makes me consider them as friends but honestly we don’t share common interests or have complementary personalities anymore.

My daughter is a college student fresh into her career. She previously worked for T-Mobile in sales/customer service. She resigned from this role after 3 years for a better opportunity at a tech start-up. She was with the company for 3 weeks, today they called her and said they could no longer afford her salary and would be letting her go. They are paying her a small severance and allowed her to keep her equipment and office set-up. Does anyone know of any opportunities that are available?
