Awwww, I wish you could be home and be with family,home sweet home!!! It is where you will always belong!!Its also called adulting🥰, learn to be closer to those around you!! I leave 18k miles away from home, I wish I could tell you, suck it up!! 🥳But I feel you go through the motions make your family proud you got this👍🏻👍🏻


I know this feeling all too well. I lived States away until I made manager and had the flexibility to move and maintain my current position. You need that right balance of family and work life and there’s no right or wrong when it comes to the right blend for you


OP - I know how you’re feeling. My husband and I moved across the country away from all family. You have to make it known to people that you are having a difficult time adjusting and establishing yourself because you are struggling with balancing work (if you are truly working extensive overttime). The right people realize that they invested in you and they don’t want you to leave so they help you out


Curious. Where is work and where is home?


Work is in the Washington DC area and home is Los Angeles


Omg I made the same move last January!!! Let’s be friends!

Before COVID, I found getting a corporate/startup/tech job to be an incredibly difficult, grueling experience, and I’m finding the same thing now despite all the job vacancies and people quitting like flies. I’m finding employers are doubling down on the same power tripping nonsense they did in interviews with me now despite me having several successful, quantifiable years of experience in Tech. It’s funny because I found
