A safety net makes all the difference. 👍🏽


I was in the same boat a decade ago. Thankfully I didn’t fail and never had to ask for even a dollar from my family. The only thing I ever got from my parents was emotional support and advice but I always knew I could ask if I got to that point. You got this!


I actually don’t want to go back to my parents house and ask for help. That’s why I don’t have the choice of failing 😂


Honestly having a similar safety net encouraged me to be bold in my younger years. It was great to have that experience


So happy for you! Wish I had that safety net lol


You’re awesome, thanks for the positive energy!


Do you think having a backup like this is good or bad for your long term success?

Ditto. It’s definitely a privilege for me and I acknowledge it.

28F. Moving with my boyfriend + WFH have really affected my sexual desire. I used to be the one initiating and now I have to force myself. I can see it’s affecting my relationship and my boyfriend is wondering if Im still attracted to him. Has anyone else experienced this?


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?

Everyone on this app is so helpful and offers support for career changers, people pivoting to a new industry, etc. Where are these people in the real world (recruiters and hiring managers).


literally on the phone with a friend mentioning how much pain I’m in rn after having had covid recently and still recovering and she goes “yeah me too” after going through nothing of the sort 😒 like wtf?! people like that are the actual worst lol

I'm falling in love with my friend. I don't know/think she feels same way. I've been here before, love always ruins my friendships 😭😭


Do you know anyone who after knowing then for years you realize they don't really stand for anything? There's nothing in which they say, "This, according to my values, is my red line and I will not participate in X." They get along with just about everyone and don't have much reaction when they're snubbed or slighted.

Would you call that maturity/zen or cowardice?


There’s no need to wear underwear at home. You can save a lot of money this way. Plus it’s healthier for your netherbits.


My thoughts as I read through posts/ comments on here:
1. “Wow they sound so cool, I totally wanna be their friend”
2. “Wow who hired them who gave them access to this app tf”
There’s no in between..

I’ve noticed I struggle a lot talking to people I don’t know very well 1:1 and it’s made networking, making new friends/dating, and happy hours with coworkers difficult (especially if they’re more senior and have less commonalities). How do you keep the convo going?

What do you all think about RELIGION, and is there a such thing as the “correct religion”?

Client be like, "on my table first thing on Tuesday morning" so here I am working away on spreadsheets when I can be spreading cheeks rn 😩


It’s interesting how ambition can actually be a bad thing. I want to make tens of millions and impact millions of people and leave a big legacy. But then the problem is with dreams that big I struggle so much to relax. I feel so much pressure to always be productive. I’m a human doing not a human being. And then I also think “well dang if I want to accomplish all these things I should be further by now” which that isn’t good for mental health either. I wish I was content with less


I got painfully dumped by someone I was sure was the one 3 months ago. Was very hard at first and struggled with sadness, shame, etc. Fast forward I’m super grateful he dumped me because it forced me to do some deep work on myself and past wounds and learn what it means to truly love myself. I’ve finally stopped thinking about him and I feel like I’m a brand new version of myself


Militant pro-lifers make me want to puke
