I signed an offer but I now can't sleep because I am concerned that the company might renege it, even with 0.00000000001% possibility. Time to see therapist? I want everything in my time with 100% certainty.

Saaaaame. Honestly, if you’re like me, you may have a poorly managed anxiety disorder. The right therapist could help. I personally haven’t found that unicorn.

Why would they renege it?

Hate to break it to you but 100% certainty almost never exists. Definitely support therapy as a way to examine why it’s so important to you and tools to help navigate important but less certain decisions.

Definitely go to therapy. 100% certainty for everything isn’t a thing. Life plans rarely work out the way you imagine. Change is constant and life is unpredictable. You’re gonna need some better tools to make it through.

I’m jealous of my husband’s work situation. He is in a non tech role at FAANG and makes the same as me ~$200k but works about 20-40 hours a week and then spends the rest of the time napping, & watching tv. He gets his work done quickly, attends meetings and has really great relationships to where people think he’s a superstar. To be fair, when things hit crunch time, he’s working hard and late hours, but it’s definitely a more balanced life. Are all faang companies work/life balance like this?

Do you throw out any gifts your ex gave you after the relationship? I feel like to a certain extent like stuffed animals, things that have strong memories attached etc make sense. But other items that you actually make good use of like blankets, jewelry, etc would you throw away just bc they got it for you?
